It doesn’t matter if you are a graduate or decades into your career; either way, the likelihood is you want to work for a great company. You want to work for a company that truly cares about their employees; one that offers career progression and excellent benefits.

But how exactly can you find a company like that?

One of the best ways to scout out a company is during the interview process. Here are five signs a company is a good fit for you.

1. The Interview Process Is Smooth

The job interview process is normally a good indicator of how you will be treated as an employee. Ask yourself these questions; do the company seem friendly in their emails? Are they offering you a range of potential meeting times for the interview? How did they treat you during the interview? Did they thank you for speaking to them? The answers to these questions will tell you more about the business and how they treat their employees.


2. They Take Feedback Seriously

A good company will normally ask for feedback from the interviewee at the end of the interview. Remember that even the most successful businesses can make mistakes along the way; the way they stay successful is by acknowledging the problem and fixing it! So look for businesses who welcome feedback from both employees and interviewees.

3. They Care About Employee Development

Great businesses understand that employee development is key to success. They understand that this benefits both the employee and the business (and they also understand that employees are more likely to stay with the company for longer if they are given the chance to advance!). So look for a company who invests time, effort and money into their employees, allowing them to grow their skillset and improve their performance.


4. The Company Office Is Pleasant

If you get the chance to interview at the office, take a minute to check out the offices after your interview. Are the desks covered with plants and family photos, or does the room have a lifeless feel? Are employees treating each other with friendliness and respect , or is the atmosphere quiet and cold? These factors may not seem important, but they can have a huge effect on your overall happiness and productivity while you are at work.


5. They Focus On Healthy Working Relationships

Finally you should look for a company that focuses on healthy working relationships, especially if you will be working as part of a team. A bad co-worker can really ruin a job, but this shouldn’t be a problem if the company prioritises HR and employee satisfaction.
