This question will enable applicants to get a firm grasp of what duties, tasks and responsibilities are required and the expectations that are in place.
2. What are the benefits the company offers?
Many employers now attract the best talent by offering various benefits and incentives. With a competitive job market in place inquiring about the benefits on offer is important.
