As a small business owner, you might have anywhere from 1-3 people working for you. Sometimes, it's just yourself. When someone comes into the office for an interview, it's usually just the business owner and the candidate.
Towards the end of the interview, the interviewer sometimes get the question, "How many people work here?"
Now, I realize they might be asking just to know. Or, they might be asking to get an idea if the company can afford them. Perhaps, they are just trying to assess the size of the company. My impression is that some just candidates want to work for a big company.
How would you answer this question in a way that builds credibility for the company?
Note: When you tell them that you have 2 employees, many candidates (especially millennials) look disenchanted and uninterested. I'm looking for ways to articulate to them that shows legitimacy and opportunity. Obviously, you should be honest and tell the truth.
