Some good questions to ask at the end of an interview include the following:
What are the most important skills and qualities required to succeed in this job?
What is a typical day or week for someone working on this job?
What new innovations, changes, processes, systems, ideas or improvements do you expect the new staff to bring to this position?
Is this a new position or a replacement?
Who does this job report to and what is the preferred management style of the Supervisor?
What do you like the most about this Company?
What is the biggest challenge that someone in this position faces?
How is performance evaluated or measured for this position?
What is the biggest challenge that this organization is facing?
Describe the company’s culture.
What are the main goals or key priorities for the company for the next 5 years?
What is the top priority or task that the new staff would have to accomplish within the first 30, 60 or 90 days?
Finally, also listen carefully during the course of an interview. Take some keynotes and be able to comment or ask a question about something specific or important that the interviewer had mentioned earlier. This would show your attentiveness and attention to detail.
At the very end of an interview, close by saying that you are definitely interested in the job and then ask – What are the next steps in the interviewing process?
