worriedbeehere11 :  Hard to answer your question regarding how many candidates may have been called in for an interview. I’m a recruiter and I’m VERY selective with who I send in to meet with my hiring managers so they may only interview one person and then make an offer to that one person. There are other recruiters in my company that are more willing to send just about anyone who meets our basic qualifications in. 

I would suggest doing a lot of research on the company (duh), find out who their competition is, what the market is like in their industry, etc.

You can use google to help find questions to ask them, but there are of course the basics: Will there be upward mobility? What’s the typical day like? What are you looking for in your ideal candidate? What are the most important skills that are needed to succeed in this position? What’s the most challenging and rewarding things about this position? How long have you been here, and what’s keeping you here? What are the companies long term goals?

worriedbeehere11 :  this is your second interview with them? You’re probably one of the front runners. I normally interview 3-5 candidates after reviewing resumes. Then I’ll let my boss interview my top 1-2 candidates before presenting the strongest with an offer. Being a small business, they probably don’t have a lot of time to interview dozens of candidates.

Having to do an online personality quiz plus asking you to come in with 5-6 questions about them seems so extra to me.

wonderwedding :  A lot of companies use online assessments in their hiring process, and candidates should always come with several questions to ask. I’m actually surprised they told her to come with questions, that should be a given.
