Questions to ask at a job interview

At the end of the interview the interviewer will likely ask "Do you have any questions?"

If you say "No" then the interviewer may think you aren't interested in the position or the company.  So you should always be prepared with a list of questions to ask the interviewer. 

Don't ask questions about salary, vacation time, benefits, etc. at the first interview and certainly not until you have asked a number of other questions to demonstrate your interest in working for the organization. 

Some good questions you can ask the interviewer:

Why is this position open?
Is this a new position? If not then how long has this position been open?
How many people have held this position in the last three years?
What happened to the person that had this position before? Was she promoted or fired or did she quit?
Who would I report to?
Who would report to me?
What do you like most about working for this firm? What do you like least?
What immediate projects will I work on?
Can you describe the company's culture and work environment?
What immediate challenges is the company or department facing?
What are the organization's short term and long term goals?
What are the opportunities for advancement like?
What are the next steps and when can I expect to hear from you?
