Closing the Barn Door After The Horse Is Gone....

Came across this list of questions you should ask in an Exit Interview
  • What did you like best about your job?
  • What did you like least about your job?
  • Was there anything especially challenging that you had to contend with?
  • What would you change about your job?
  • How did you feel about the supervision you received?
  • Did did you receive enough training to do the job effectively?
  • Did you receive enough support to do your job effectively?
  • How do you feel about the feedback your received from your manager?
  • What did you like best about working for the company?
  • What did you like least about working for the company?
  • Do you have any recommendations for the company for the future?
  • Would you work for the company in the future?
  • Would you recommend this company to prospective employees?
  • Do you have any questions or comments?
 My question is this; Why are you waiting until they're out the door before asking your employees these questions?
