Working off of a thread on Reddit, Emily Co at PopSugar suggests asking questions like:
"What is one thing I could accomplish in my first six months here that would have the most impact?"
"If I were chosen for this position, what would a regular day at work look like for me?"
One question you should never ask: "When do I start?" In addition to, uh, lacking subtlety, that sort of aggressive, no-holds-barred approach might turn off the interviewer.
In any case, your body language and general demeanor might be even more important than the actual questions you ask. Redditor timmyburns says:
"What all this boils down to is you having a real interest in what you're asking about. A company wants you to work there because you like the company, culture, and the work being done in their industry."
In other words, the best way not to look like you're full of it ... is not to be.
