I just had a first interview and it was really strange to me. These are the type of questions they were asking me:
Q: Does your current position offer health care?
Q: Do you have to pay in or is it all provided?
A: Pay In
Q: How much?
Q: Do you get an annual bonus?
A: I did last year
Q: How much was your bonus?
Are these normal questions for an HR to be asking? I've only ever interviewed with the departments that I would be working with. For this company I had to first interview with HR and if I'm offered a second interview it would be with the Dept I'd be involved in. Now I'm concerned if they contact my reference from here and ask the same questions if there are any differences it'll make me look like I was dishonest when I really just answered as best I could without wanting to give them to much. Its supposed to be a very good company to work for but this seemed like they were fishing for information to turn around and offer me the lowest amount possible.
