Salary and benefits are two subjects you should never approach until there is a job offer on the table. Asking about how much money you will make or how many vacation days you will receive signals to the interviewer you care more about the perks than the position. Although it’s natural to be curious about these figures, it’s best to save that conversation for a more appropriate time.
Another question to avoid is, "Can you tell me more about the company?" This may seem innocent; however, it is a red flag to recruiters. Before an interview, it is your responsibility to conduct basic research on the company and consider whether or not it is a good fit. By asking this question, you give the interviewer the impression you don’t really care about the organization or its mission.
