It's safe to say everyone can get a little bit scared when it comes to job interviews.

They're daunting and unpredictable, and make us all super nervous.

But when it comes down to it, how many of us actually pluck up the courage to ask the interviewer questions at the end?

Sure, you might have a few prepared, but most of the time, those either get forgotten about, or you're shoved out the door to make way for the next candidate.

So, if you want some extra information about the company, or want to find out more about room for growth and development, here are a few questions to fire their way at the end of your interview:

What is the company culture?

Victorimedia says that this is, "an oldie, but a goodie." Company culture means what the company does for fun and what the work life environment is like.

By asking this question you'll find out what it's like to work in their business, and what the attitudes of your future colleagues will be like.

Having a good place to work in and having supportive people behind you is a major plus in any job.

advice, advise, advisor

 

What is the performance review process like?

As Enterprisealive.ie writes, you don't want this question to be picked up the wrong way, however, it's a very important question to ask.

It will benefit you to know if you're going to grow within the business, if there will be any promotions available in the future and if you'll get any rewards for a job well done.

If they don't have an answer or look nervous – this could be a red flag that there's not a lot of movement or raise potential.

Is there anything about my application that gives you doubt? If so, I'd love to discuss those concerns.

This question is certainly not for the faint-hearted, but it's a great conclusion to any interview.

That kind of vulnerability isn't easy, but many employers will be impressed by your confidence to ask it.

If your interviewer replies with some critique, this will give you the chance to explain yourself and set the record straight.

Justin Bieber totally turned himself around last year and he went from an annoying, baby-faced diva to a handsome grown-up hunk.

And while his fans think that they know everything about him, there's some little quirks he likes to keep to himself.

But, Glamour mag sat down with the Sorry singer and asked him 25 random questions.

While they might be simple, they're still informative – and might we say, the answers make us Bieleb in him even more.

"What's your most underrated characteristic? My sense of humor.

"Your favourite iPhone app? The selfie and antibullying app Shots.

"You mean, your app! Most used emoji on your phone? The smiley face 🙂

"What's the last song you sang in the shower? Alanis Morissette's Ironic.

"Somewhere in the world you haven't been that you'd like to go? India.

"What would you want as your last meal on earth? Spaghetti Bolognese.

"What is your greatest fear? Small spaces.

"First splurge? A sports car.

"The TV show you're binge-watching now? Workaholics.

"Us too! Last person you kissed? I don't kiss and tell."

Check out the rest of the juicy Q&A here, believe us it's worth it.

Hair salons are one of our favourite places. They're warm, they're inviting and the stylists are our pals.

They want us to look fab, they do their best to help and we generally leave feeling pretty great about ourselves.

Oh, here's another thing about salons- you have to answer a lot of questions when you get there. And we mean a lot.

Here are just ten that get asked in the space of one appointment.

1 “Are you going anywhere nice tonight?”

Alternative

“Ya off out?”

2 "So, have you been watching X Factor?"

Alternative

"What do you make of Strictly this year?"

3 "Have you been straightening?"

Translation

"Your hair feels like straw and I resent having to deal with it."

4 "Who cut your hair last?"

Translation

"This is butchered and I sure as hell didn’t do it."

5 "Ya all set for Christmas?"

Alternative

"Have you any holidays planned?"

6 "Have you been using a hair protectant?"

Translation

 "I told you last time to use it and you didn't, ya scamp."

7) "Are you panicking? Sure, I’m only taking the ends, I promise."

Translation

 "Will you relax your shoulders babes!"

8) "What are we doing with ya today?"

Translation

"I am going to sort that mess right out, hun, don't worry."

9) "Now, be sure to drop back in for a trim in a few weeks, won’t you?"

Translation

"Don’t let your hair get like that again."

10) "Do you want a spritz?"

Translation

"Take a spritz."

An appointment wouldn't be an appointment without them and we hope they never end! 

"Sorry, did you ask me something?"

If you’ve been dating your boyfriend for a while now, you may indulge in some wedding themed daydreams. Of course this doesn’t mean you necessarily want to get married ASAP – but hypothetically speaking, if he DID ask you, here are some questions you might want to ask yourself:

Is it love, or lust?
Looks don’t last, so ask yourself: if you woke up in the morning and he’d gotten considerably less good looking, would you still love him, or would you run for the hills?

Do you want the same things?
Are you both in agreement about having kids, or where and how you want to live? The last thing you want is to find yourself engaged to a man who wants completely different things, no matter how much you love him. And you’d be surprised how many couples find themselves in this situation after years of being together!

How do you handle arguments?
Having arguments is a natural part of being in a relationship, but it’s how you handle them that counts. Do you really want to be married to someone who flies off the handle at the slightest hint of a disagreement? Or who disappears for hours leaving you worried about where they are after you confront them over something?

What’s he like with money?
We know you can’t buy love, but you can squander it away if your other half has no appreciation of how hard you work for your money. Is he going to be arriving home with a brand new car when the washing machine needs replacing? Being an adult is hard enough, with these extra stresses.

Do you want him, or the fairytale?
Ask yourself if you want him, or if you just want the security of being married. If you want him, flaws and all, then go for it. If not, perhaps it’s time to re-think the situation….

There are some questions in this life that should never be asked. You know that type of questions we mean. The ones that make time seem to stand still and that make you want to shrivel up and die inside a little. The ones that if you could turn back time and un-hear, you most definitely would.

So, in order to prepare you for every eventuality, here are some extremely awkward life questions to try and avoid:

1. “So, what are you doing with your life now?”

Well, right now I’m wishing you’d turn around and pretend you didn't see me, you?

2. “How’s the love life?”

Oh fantastic. Despite the fact that we don't know or even like each other that much, you are definitely the person with whom we will share all details of our love life with. Even if it consists of nothing more than repeats of The Notebook.

3. “Still single?”

Still a jerk?

4. “Will we hear wedding bells any time soon?”

Leave me alone!

5. “Do you want kids some day?”

None yo' business!

6. “Are you using protection?”

Oh dear God please stop. Seriously mom. 

7. “Where do you see yourself in ten years time?”

I try not to think about life in ten days time, so ten years is a bit ridiculous isn't it?

8. “What are your salary expectations?”

More than this but what choice is there?

9. “What would you say are your best qualities?”

Bleugh, this one is so hard. There's a fine line between confident and arrogant. 

10. “Why do you think you should get this job?”

Well, the dole is good for about two weeks and then the days just drag and Doctor Phil reruns are back to the start again so…yeah. 

11. “How much do you weigh?”

Just enough.

12. “How many times a week do you work out?”

Couldn't even count it's so often. 

13. “Are you sleeping with them?”

Unless it's your BFF, that's none of your concern. 

14. “So what’s your magic number?”

A lady does not kiss and tell. Not to you anyway.

People always assume that being tall is great and that we’re luckier than everyone else – but being tall isn’t always so hot! Here are some questions we are sick of answering:

1. “What HEIGHT are you?”
Taller than you. That’s all you need to know.

tumblr_inline_mizd9uyBXq1qz4rgp2.”Can you get that there?”
Used and abused for our height.

3. “You must get everywhere so much faster.”
Incidentally, yes. Yes we do.

4. “Flying must be fun for you?”
Flying isn’t fun for anyone. Ever. Fact.

tumblr_n4efgwcPG51s8hnhko1_5005. “Let’s take a selfie. Can you lean down a bit there?”
Can you just stand on your tippie toes, please?

6. “Jesus, I’d love to see the height of you in heels.”
We don’t wear heels.

7. “Does Penneys have a tall girl section?”
On behalf of tall girls everywhere, we’d like to propose this genius idea to Penneys. Please, do your taller customers a massive favour and cut some clothes that will actually cover our bum.

tumblr_mn66585j6I1qj4315o1_500

8. “Are your parents really tall too?”
No.

tumblr_mccqdy8GMK1qbh0eio1_5009. “That shower’s a bit low, good luck with that.”
This really is the worst thing ever.

tumblr_mxmootfHUq1slgu2mo1_500

10. “Have you always been that tall?”
Have you always been this stupid?

tumblr_mkthljmTMP1r1weouo1_25011. “Finding a man taller than you must be tricky.”
