Interview Question: Do You Have Any Questions For Me?

Why Should I Work For You?


You got the elusive interview at the dispensary. You polished your resume. You dressed nice, and remembered the tiny details. You arrived on time. You’re sitting in front of the one persona that’s standing between you and a cannabis job– the hiring manager. The interviewer asks one simple interview question, it catches you off guard. “Do you have any questions for me?” The obvious answers that come to mind is “When do I start?” While this answer shows enthusiasm, it never really earned any one points in a job interview.

What if your interviewer was not very thorough? This is an amazing opportunity to demonstrate curiosity and willingness to learn more about the company.  “Do you have any questions for me?” Never reply with “No, I’m good.” You have the opportunity to interview with them. Take it– and use it to your advantage. If you want to work at a dispensary or cultivation center or anywhere else in the cannabis field, you absolutely should have questions. It is a new industry! Here are a few to get started.



The worst interview questions include topics about salary, benefits, vacation time, work hours per week, samples, other self-driven benefits. During an interview, you need to demonstrate to the employer how you can benefit the company, not the other way around. Once you get the job, you can then begin to ask what the company can do for you.
