2. “What is your Management style?”

-Your preference might be servant or consultative etc.

3.“What can you tell me about the team that I will be working with?”

-Know with whom you will be spending 40 hours+ per week of your life

4. “What immediate challenges is the department facing in light of COVID-19?”

-Good way to probe about company weaknesses.

5. “How do you effectively provide feedback to your employees?”

-Find out how well management communicates.

6. “What is your expectation of me in the first 6 months in this role.”

-This will be an indication of pressure you may face.

7. “What are the top 3 values of this company?”

You should also ask questions about the technical and operational side of the role that you are interviewing for, based on the job description.
