Why doesn't the job interviewer allow the candidate to ask any questions?
Asking questions towards the end of the interview is important so that the interviewer knows that you are interested in the job. In some cases when the interviewer for a job does not ask us the question, "Do you have any questions?" after an interview. For example, instead of asking if we have any questions, they'd say that it's the end of the interview, thank you, and shows us to the door. Is there such thing in some interview cases? And if this is the situation, should the candidate take the initiative to ask questions anyway?

An initial interview is for YOU to impress the employer. The interviewer asks questions of the interviewee so as to determine if the applicant is qualified for the poition, if they have the right attitude for the position, or if they will make a right "fit" in the position available... More
