What questions are you going to ask before you accept?

Postby 180orbust » Mon Oct 04, 2010 12:22 am

What are the most important questions to ask, and to whom should I ask these questions? Pretty sure I know enough to be confident about accepting, but I wanted to make sure there weren't any important questions or people I should talk to that hadn't occurred to me.

Should I be asking detailed questions about billing requirements, bonuses, evaluations?

Life is too short to just "know enough." If I merely wanted to "know enough" in the service industry, I'd still be busing tables with dirty dishtowels and scratching dirt off of partially washed dishes with my fingernails. This is the big leagues, and the stakes are too high just to "know enough."

A simple set of questions does not even come close to the deep shit I'm trying to drop on here.

The only questions I asked:
1. Is there a gym in the building?
2. Is it accessible 24/7?
3. Does it have a bench press?

After the firm answered the above three questions in the affirmative, I accepted. True story.
