Company Values

How would you define your company values?

With this question, you're looking for consistency. If possible, ask three interviewers: If you get three totally different responses, the company's culture probably needs work. Follow up on the interviewers' responses. If somebody says the company values teamwork, for instance, ask how teams are structured. What activities does the company use to foster teamwork? Take notes, and look for congruence between company policies and management styles.

Like Goldilocks, finding a job that's just right can be a challenge. It takes a lot of work to find the right balance between doing something we really love, making enough money to support our desired lifestyle, having enough challenge and reward to keep us engaged, and managing our work and home lives to create a healthy balance. Finding the right employer can go a long way toward fulfilling these ideals, but how do you go about that in the brief time you have during an interview?

According to Gene Ku, founder and chairman of Mobovida, writing for Glassdoor, choosing the right company starts with asking the right questions. In this slideshow, we've featured the six questions Ku recommends you bring to your next interview.
