What you need to negotiate at an interview
Try to learn as much as possible about their job responsibilities. Often employers like to "save" on the workplace, requiring employees to combine the duties of related posts. If you are satisfied with the additional responsibilities, find out if you will fulfill them for one salary or they will be paid in full.
Discuss the internal discipline of the company, the regime and the schedule of work. A well-formulated and direct question, as a rule, is given an honest and direct answer. Try to find out whether it is customary to detain employees at work during off-hour time, whether work is practiced on holidays and weekends, whether there is a lunch break. If you are not accustomed to work and hard work, it will be a discovery for you that you have to work without dinner and not even have a chance to drink a cup of tea.
The issue of pay is one of the most important. Find out what will generate your earnings: from salary, salary plus interest or salary plus bonus. Discuss whether the employer reduces the amount of wages during the trial period. Such a condition allows a decrease in salary by no more than 20 percent. The so-called internship for "pennies" does not promise any guarantee of future stable work.
Discuss with the representative of the company whether the provisions of the Labor Code are observed and, if not, what kind of derogations from the law the employer allows himself. Accepting a job offer, you a priori agree with these deviations and, if you decide in the future to make a complaint to the leadership for non-compliance with the provisions of the law, this will look at least silly. It is important to discuss the terms of the social package provided to the company's employees. Some companies, in addition to compliance with labor laws, provide employees with free meals in the dining room, mobile phone charges, fuel, medical insurance, and sometimes even gym and corporate rest.
At the final stage of the interview, when you are preferred to all other candidates and you are offered a specific position, find out or, if possible, inspect the future workplace. The post may promise great prospects and beckon with high wages, but can you fully work in a small, stuffy room without windows and air conditioning?
