Interview Red Flags: Signs of a Toxic Work Environment. 7 Interview Red Flags to look for to ensure you don’t end up in a toxic work environment. Sometimes a job might seem like a perfect fit the way it is described, but the reality can be very far from it. How can we ensure we don’t end up working in a toxic workplace? No matter how much pressure there is during your job interview, you can STILL notice certain signs which translate into interview red flags. Meaning: the company is NOT a good fit for you. Some people decide to accept the job even after the obvious interview red flags. They worry they might not get another job. They feel pressured by their financial situation. So they take the job and, of course, they regret this decision. Because soon they are back to the job market, searching for a job but with their confidence completely shaken, doubting their skills and capabilities.
I always tell this to candidates, you are not the only one who is being interviewed. During your job interview you should also be gathering as much information about the company as possible, so you won’t end up in a wrong place. These are the interview red flags which warn you of a possible toxic work environment:
1. Your first impressions were negative
Whether you are interviewing online or in person, pay attention to how the employees interact with you and with each other.
If you are visiting their offices, are you greeted nicely by the reception?
Look around, do you see anyone, people in the meetings? Take note of the atmosphere you see in the building. What does the environment feel like? Do they seem happy and energized? Are they comfortably talking with each other?
If all you see are tired faces, no one smiling, in fact quite the opposite they are all looking miserable this is an obvious red flag. From the way you were greeted to the interactions you witness between employees, you should look for people that seem happy, energetic, friendly and comfortable…
