How Do I Get Answers to My Questions in the 3rd Interview?

by MIA
(New York City)

Hello, I have been able to get to the 3rd interview but there are a few things about the job that I am not "too happy" about. I would like to hear your advice on how to address these concerns in the most tactful way.

Basically they told me that once/week I'll have to work in an office out of town (it will take me more than 1 hour to get there); the job description didn't include that.

Plus I would like to know if this commute will be paid for (it will cost me money to take the train to go and come back). And last, the salary is not that great, but I would have been fine with it if they weren't asking me to commute for 2 hours every week (once/week).

ANSWER: Mia, I think you just have to ask these questions in a forthright, but polite, way. These are all valid issues and you need to know what you are getting into before you accept the job, if offered.
