What is your review process like?

Although you might be genuinely concerned about your performance or how managers give feedback, avoid asking questions about the review process. This can make hiring managers worry about how well you’ll perform on the job once hired.

You’re sitting in an interview, and the hiring manager is about to wrap everything up. Just when you think you’re free to leave, the hiring manager asks, "Do you have any questions for me?" You’re speechless. In an effort to think on your feet, you blurt out, “How much does this position pay?” Immediately, you realize this probably wasn’t the best question to ask once you see the expression on the hiring manager’s face. Job seekers make two mistakes during the interview process: They don’t have questions prepared for the interviewer, and they ask the wrong questions.

Asking the wrong question during an interview can definitely cost you a job offer. By avoiding these questions and doing your research, you’ll be better prepared with thoughtful questions to ask at the conclusion of a job interview.

As you prepare for your next job interview, here are 10 of the worst questions, identified by Heather Huhman, writing for Glassdoor.com, that you should avoid asking a hiring manager.
