Side note: does this thread remind anyone else of Ben Wyatt and Barney Varmn from "Parks and Recreation"?

Regardless, I appreciate your and others' advice on the matter, even if it is a bit premature!

Another question. What if you are somewhat on the cusp of the position's experience requirement and want to know a realistic timeline to get promoted to the next position? Can you ask that?
anyways, regarding the second paragraph, is this appropriate to ask at the offer stage?

Just to follow up (because I know everyone's been on the edge of their seat waiting to hear!):

I didn't need to go through the whole interview process again.

The official offer came in higher than the previous offer I got (last year). I countered, they met me almost halfway, I took the job!

I think asking these types of questions at the offer stage is definitely appropriate -- you need to make an informed decision, and if they won't give you that info or at least have a conversation about it, I'd say it's likely because they know their answer isn't what you want to hear.

I ended up asking a few questions after the offer was made (before I countered), including: expected timeline for promotion/advancement and average actual bonus percentage.
