Ask what are they looking for in a candidate. Ask them if you they have any more questions or if they want you to expand on anything else from your resume. Ask what the team dynamic is like. Ask what they expect the learning curve to be for this position. Ask what types of clients you would specifically be working on.

This is so situation specific. It’s kind of sink or swim. If you can’t do well in the interview, the job isn’t going to work out.
