    • What are your skills?  If they approached you then I’d say a pretty good chance you’ll land the job.  I would ask them about benefits, holidays and definitely your pay.  But hey, I work for my husband so I didn’t have to ask any questions!  I would let them know that I would be an asset to their company and be very confident.  (easier said than done).

    • Thx AC!

      I am pretty confident in what I do. It’s for an executive director’s position of a cosmetology school. I have been in upper mgt in the salon/retail end of things so this part is new to me.
      I don’t really need the bennies even tho they would be nice. How do you feel about asking for more compensation or vaca time in lieu of bennies?

    • Don’t ask about benefits, pay, etc.  Check with Google and ask “what are good questions for me to ask during an interview“.  You’ll get lots of great help.  Good luck!

      Vikki,  

      Look under the Book/Show trailers tab on my site.
      There is a video posted at the top of the page I thought you might get a kick out of...

    • Thx Melissa!
      No not too much info at all. There are 2 downsides to this position and I am hoping the positives will outweigh them. One is that the school was just recently bought out so I expect resentment from whatever staff is left standing. Which is fine if they hate me just don’t make it harder on the students. And 2nd it’s very unclear as to who owns this company...which shouldn’t be a big deal but I left my last company because I didn’t like the direction of the company that bought our little company. They have the attitude of being the BIGGEST while I have the attitude of being the BEST.....
      Today at 6pm CST is my interview.....

    • Some say asking about money and benefits is not smart.  However, at our company people who have applied do ask about pay and benefits.  My husband likes to know this up front.  I feel employment is a two way street.  Plus my husband always hires people who have served in the military.  They are very disciplined and have good work ethics.
