Interviewing: You've Passed the First Interview, Now What

OK, you did it. They love you and now you are ready to move to the next step in the hiring process. What the heck? How are you supposed to know what comes next. Well, you ask. At the conclusion of the interview it is always a good idea to have a few questions that you would like answered. It demonstrates to the potential employer that you are interested in the opportunity and it also demonstrates how well you have listened through the interview. So what are some good (appropriate) questions to ask:

1. How long have you worked here?
2. Why is the position vacant and how long have you been sourcing candidates?
3. What do you like most about working here?
4. What do you like least about working here?
5. What are the next steps in this process (meaning the interview)?
6. What is your timeframe to fill the position?

Remember, if the interviewer has already answered any question above, don't ask it just to hear them repeat themselves.
