Ask these questions during your exit interview

While not always the case, most companies will conduct an exit interview before an employee moves on. This is designed to give both parties the opportunity to ask questions and ensure that they're clear on what happens next.

It's not always easy to partake in an exit interview, especially if your employment was terminated. However, you don't want to sit back and take whatever comes your way. Instead, ask the following questions:

  • Can you explain the reasons for my termination?
  • Will the feedback I provide during this interview remain anonymous?
  • What are some of the things that I did well during my time with the company?
  • What areas do you suggest I improve on in the future?
  • When should I expect to receive my final paycheck? Do you know the total amount?
  • Am I entitled to receive any form of severance pay?
  • Is there a noncompete agreement in place that will impact my job search?

These are among the most important questions to ask, but don't shy away from any others that will help you better understand what's happening.

If you have reason to believe your employment was wrongfully terminated, review your employee handbook and employment contract before your exit interview. This will give you a better idea of the questions to ask and where to steer the conversation.

If you're unhappy with the results of the exit interview, don't hesitate to learn more about your legal rights. For example, if you were entitled to severance pay, and your employer is attempting to fight it, you'll want to take immediate action.
