I’ve said it before; I’ll say it again. A job interview is a two way street. You are not there to be harassed with terrifying questions. You are there so the company as well as yourself can see how well you would fit the role. While you should be trying to impress your potential future employer, you also need to suss out whether this position is suited to you.
P.S. When an interviewer asks “do you have any questions for me?” that’s secret business language for “ok, your turn” so have something prepared. And never say no.
