    Any reasonable question will do; one isn't marking the quality of the question. However, it is a matter of politeness as much as anything else to ask something.

    Is there staff parking?

    I don't really know Scunthorpe, what is the town like?

    How many are in the team/department?

    Is there a company football/netball team?

    What proportion of my time is likely to be spent dealing with the public/visiting other branches/doing research?

    If you are being interviewed by the real boss: where do you see the business in five years?


    It isn't difficult.
    I've got the job after saying that...

    usually I've had a tour/walkaround as part of the process and asked questions there
