1. “How do you define success for this job?”This question helps you get a clear understanding of what the job entails and the expectations the company will have for you in it.
2. Something specific about the organization-It’s always a great idea to ask a question that shows you did your research before the interview and it shows the interviewer that you are interested in the company.
3. “Can I have a quick tour or can I meet some people I’d be working with?” Both questions will get you out of the interview room and allow you to get a better look at the office. This will give you a chance to gauge co-worker interaction and office culture. this may not be possible on a first interview but certainly can be done on a second interview.
4. “What is your favorite part about working here?” Companies, like job candidates, are putting their best foot forward during the interview process. By asking every person you interview with what they like best about working at the company you’ll get a better sense of the culture that people regularly experience.
5. “Do you see any reason I might not be a good fit for this position?” It may seem counterproductive to inquire about your potential flaws during an interview, but it’s actually a great thing to bring up at the end of the interview. It will help you gauge the interviewer's interest and will show your interest in the opportunity. Even if there is a doubt in your mind it never hurts to leave the interview on a positive note.
