I have recently been interviewing for jobs again.
I have taken the advice to heart that interviewing is a two-way street, and I always have some questions of my own prepared.
Apart from interviewers who leave no time at all to ask questions, there is one particular question I've gotten a lot of pushback on; either because it is inappropriate or because it is something they just don't talk about in interviews.
The question is: "How does your office and the culture handle employee birthdays?"
This is an important question to me, as from experience it is a major cultural indicator. Should I be asking it differently, or is there another way to push through and get my answer?
