How did people react to this interview-related post?

“I wouldn’t ask question 2 because you are actively asking them to find negatives about you that they may or may not have thought about. The others are fine,” argued a Threads user.

“I had a recent interview where I was the last one out of 15 people, and they only asked me 3 or 4 questions. I said 'nope', I made sure to ask questions because I did not waste 3 hours waiting and to be called last for nothing. I ended up getting the job after that,” shared another.

“During interviews I have always asked questions. Number one and two are my favourites. I will definitely use them in the future. Thank you for sharing,” wrote a fourth.

While a few reacted to the post using emojis, some pointed out that though the writer mentioned ten points in the first post, the thread only listed eight questions.
