So linkedin has been bombarding me with HR fluff pieces about what you should ask candidates, and conversely what candidates should ask potential employers.
I ignored them until my subconscious coughed up the answer.
This is what you should ask any potential employer….
What is your null process?
ie. If someone (anyone) spots a trivial obvious customer visible flaw, that literally has a one line fix….
What is your process from the defect being spotted until the fix is delivered into the customers hands?
More than anything this will tell you what sort of shop you’re dealing with.
ie. Whether you dealing with a bunch of cowboys or process droids so heavy that nothing can get done.
