Culture Queries

The best questions to ask your interviewer

get it

The one question that every interviewer asks is: "Do you have any questions for me?"

It's an incredibly important part of the interview, so I went ahead and did the work for you to prepare for it! Culture Queries provides thoughtful, well-crafted questions for you to ask in your next job interview. Good luck, and let me know how it goes!

@alexpete @lynne_tye The behind-the-blur text is what sold me on adding my email address. Awesome app, and nice touch!

What an amazing idea! Loved it! As a former job-seeker and current recruiter, I always wanted to hear more of companies, and also want more candidates to ask about core values - because, in the end of the day, you're not just after a nice paycheck, but also a lifestyle.

@tiagocesar Yes, it is so much more than getting a paycheck! I know that salary and compensation are important, but no one should spend their waking hours with people that don't excite and inspire them. Life is too short!

Culture Queries is great! As someone who's been on both sides of the technical interview, I'm very aware how hard it is to ask good questions. I love the process of deciding which values you care about first and then receiving recs from Key Values to guide which questions to ask (and why you should ask them!). Based on the results I've found on Culture Queries so far, if a candidate asked me these questions I would come away from the interview with a sense that they really cared about figuring out whether the job was a great fit.

@cadran_c Thanks for your thoughtful comment, Cadran! I've found that knowing what to ask is just half the battle, there's also an art to *how* you ask. Hopefully anyone interviewing at YC will now know what to ask you. 😉
