    Job application question

    Advertisements
    So I'm filling out an app for a job and stapled to it is a sheet of what appears to be interview questions. At the top it says "Perspective Employee (fill out)" "interviewed by" and "interview date" then has all the questions listed. This might seem dumb but I don't know if I am supposed to answer the questions now or during an interview. At my old job we had a similar sheet that we stapled to the app after it was turned in and we asked the questions during the interview but I'm assuming that since it's attached already they want me to answer them now? I just don't want to show up to turn it in and look dumb Would you answer them now?

    I probably will in the morning. I feel like such a nerd, I haven't applied for a job in forever (I was with my old company for ten years) let alone with a paper application

    Yes I would definitely call. You don't want to go in there with it filled out and not supposed to or vice versa. What throws me off is it having a spot for "interviewed by" etc which makes it look like the person interviewing you is supposed to fill it out.

    Yeah it definitely looks like it would be for an interview but then it does say "fill out" next to where my name would go. I'll just call in the morning I guess. I don't want to start off with them thinking I'm dumb but I'd rather ask than do it wrong I suppose.

    I guess checking looks better than assuming and doing it wrong. You'd think by this point in my life I'd know how to apply for a job

    Checking looks better than showing up unprepared. Tell them you'd like to clarify the attachment on the application and need to know if that was meant to be done by you before turning in or if it was meant to be used during the interview process.
