When the interviewer ask you if you have any questions, you should always ask a question pertaining to the job. For example, I had an interview for an EDI role and I asked the question related to an 850 order "How do you handle a single EDI 850 order that is for multiple orders" I asked this question not because I don't know EDI, but to get an idea how the organization handles different EDI situations. Another good EDI question to ask is "Do you have separate EDI maps per trading partner, or do you just have a generic map that you use and create rules to fit the need. Response to this answer will give you an idea of the challenges that you face in either situation. Most companies prefer that each trading partners have their own map while others would rather have a limited number of maps but have a lot of "IF THEN ELSE statements" There are pluses on both sides, but the response will give you a better indication of the work environment. The point to asking a question pertaining to the job is it shows forward thinking, and you can have some input from day one. And if an employer doesn't like these types of questions, then they won't hire you. But do you really want to work for an employer that doesn't want your input?

Why is there terrible low-fi video game music going playing in "the background"? This is a video made in your car "after this great interview". Is this what life is? Just tailoring all content to be as consumable as possible?
