I think it’s a fair question if generic. I’d want to know if there’s a big backlog of projects or if it’s more over hiring as well as what type of projects I might work on (client size/industry).

Agreed, it's a totally fair question to get an idea of how the practice is doing and what you are walking into. Think OP need to put himself in candidates shoes a bit more, if you are someone that has been at a firm that has experienced layoffs where they struggled to sell.

Is there a better way to ask the root question: when I start, will I be on the bench or on a billable project?

While I agree with this approach toward delivery, I think the pipeline question is fair and a good one from a potential candidate. Do you work at PwC? DM me.

Happy to share other interview thoughts also
