They are important so why don’t you ask for. For example, my first time interview in a Danish Company, I did not ask about the salary. And then, I was disappointed. For sure, it was not a good experience. In Asia, asking questions to the interviewer during the interview is not common due to cultural norms. However, we are living in a more open society where space between countries and cultures is shortened day by day. So, you should also be open and ask whatever you think is good and necessary to your interviewer. They have a lot of experience and will not be uncomfortable by you asking.

In my opinion, I’ve done interviews before and I always try to dress formally and being polite as much as possible. This kind of attitude will create your professional image in others’ eyes and gives you more confidence. So, make sure that your appearance is proper and also manner is important too.
