Q: Is asking an interviewer, "Is there anything you would change about the organization," inappropriate? A previous employer was not a pleasant fella to work for, and the organization was chaotic. After putting up with that for 10 years I wanted to assess whether or not I was setting myself up for the same issues with this new employer. The interviewer said she "was not prepared to be interviewed, and would rather not answer those questions." Did I offend her?
