On 18 February 2014, Redditor ForWhomTheBoneBones posted a Good Guy Greg meme on Imgur with this caption: “GG /u/radioactdave, I’ll be buying you gold with my first paycheck.” The meme stated, “BEEN UNEMPLOYED FOR 8 MONTHS AND JUST GOT A JOB / /U/RADIOACTDAVE COMPILES ALL THE BEST QUESTIONS FOR A JOB INTERVIEW THAT HELPED ME GET THE POSITION.” In January 2014, DoctorStrange37 had posted on AskReddit this question: “Employers of Reddit: During an interview, when you ask ‘Have you any questions?’, what are the questions we should be asking? [Serious].” /U/RADIOACTDAVE come up with this list of questions:

“If I were to start in this position right away, what is the single biggest contribution I could make in the first few weeks?

“Do you like working for this company?

“How long have you worked for this company?

“How big would my team be?

“What is the average age of my team?

“How long has the team been together?

“How much time, on average, would you say the team spends in meetings per week?

“What would a person in my position’s average day look like?

“What is the turnover rate here?

“Do employees generally get along well?

“Do they socialize with each other after work sometimes?

“If you had to pick, would you say the company leaned more Google, or more IBM when it came to working environment?

“How often would I be asked to work more than 40 hours per week, or work on weekends?

“Is there any reason you think I might have difficulty doing this job at the level the company wants?

“I’d like the opportunity to address any hesitations you have about my ability to do the job. Are there any you’d like to share at this time?

“Why is this position available?
