I prefer questions that are specific, verifiable, and relevant to me. When they are specific and formatted differently, interviewers will often surprise themselves by being honest. Furthermore if there is anything that would be a deal breaker, you need to ask up front.

"Why and when did the last three people who left, leave?"

"How big is the team?"

"Due to family responsibilities, I need to work an odd schedule. How open are you to letting me start at noon and then work a full day?"
