Tell me about your typical work day

This interview questions helps you understand tasks and responsibilities associated with this role. Listen to the answers and you may also be able to understand the current management style of the hiring manager.

GOALS

Understand Daily Agenda: Often the co-worker interviewing you is a person in the team that has the same or similar assignments as you. This means, it is a great opportunity to understand how a typical working day would play out for you. Job descriptions can be vague or overfilled with tasks and responsibilities. What are the tasks that need to be done on an everyday basis? Most jobs have elements that are less appealing, but understanding what those are before you are hired can be helpful.

Understand Management Style: As this person already reports to your future manager, we can use this question to gauge how they interact. If the daily agenda involves asking their manager for approval, this might not be the right job for you, if you prefer a low-touch management style.

Monotonous Tasks: Often a person working in a very versatile role, will right away volunteer that not every day is the same. If not, a simple follow-up question helps us understand if every day is the same.
