2. Would you recommend this company as a great place for a friend to work?

This taps into the heart of the employee experience. Even if the company isn't a good fit for one person, every company hopes that former employees continue to promote the company as a good place to work.

3. Did you feel that work you were doing aligned with your personal goals and interests?

Employees should always feel like they're developing new skills and working in an area that they're passionate about. A majority - 70 percent -of employees feel disengaged, and when they're disengaged, they're more likely to leave. While the job tasks won't change, HR can integrate questions about personal goals and hobbies into the hiring process.

4. Did you have tools and resources that you needed to effectively do your job?

Without the right training and resources in place, employees might not feel that they can effectively do their jobs, or worse they might feel that their work isn't valued enough to get adequate support. This is something that HR can easily change, given adequate financial resources.

5. Tell me was there any particular thing or event that triggered your decision to leave?

If there's a particular reason for you to leave your current job, you can say something like:
In last some months, I had been handling a lot of responsibilities. I tried to extend myself to do justice with all of them. Some of the tasks were actually exhaustive and I had asked for more support in terms of resources and better planning from the management but somehow it could not work out.

6. What were your parameters to select your new employer?

There were a lot of things which I considered while selecting my new employer. For e.g. - the growth opportunity, work culture, work environment, flexibility, scope to apply what I have learnt and experienced till date etc.

7. How did job match your expectations?

It's important to know if the job is what the employee expected. If not, the HR team should rejigger how they market and talk about the position.

8. Do you think that company was able to help you meet your career aspirations?

Yes, the company did help me learn and grow all these year but I believe that my growth and opportunities to learn have reached a plateau here and it's the time to move on.

9. How do you rate our management and skills?

If you have been happy with the overall management style but see some areas for improvement, you can say something like:
Overall, I am happy with the management style of the company but there's a scope of improvement in the way we deal with our new recruits. We can allow them to be more independent from the beginning so that they start performing more quickly. Further, if we can also streamline our decision making process, it will be more helpful in cutting out unnecessary steps and reaching a conclusion faster.

10. Why you want to leave your job?

The reasons to change the job can be numerous - may be you are not happy with the work you are doing or you want to explore better opportunities or you may have some personal problems.
