Can I ask to interview the person leaving the role I am considering accepting?
I am interviewing with a division owned by a high profile Tech parent company that doesn't have the best reputation when it comes to company culture. Being a separate division I am hoping that this doesn't apply to this division.
I asked the question, "Can you tell me why this position is open?" I learned the person was moving into the corporate side in an operations role. So I asked if I could speak with the person leaving this role.
My husband said it was ballsy of me to ask. Was I wrong to ask this?
