Asking questions during an interview shows your interest in the company and the job, sets you apart from the crowd of applicants and gives you information that will help you make the right decision.

It's vital that you ask questions during the interview to assess all aspects of the opportunity, but asking textbook questions won't cut it. You know how you feel about answering the standard questions like "tell me about yourself" or "what is your greatest weakness." Don't use the equivalent interviewee questions.
