I agree. I tried to phrase questions so that they pertained specifically to junior faculty, too… the amount of support for tenure, etc.
Likely just going through formalities and telling you about the university. They might ask you to describe your research as well.
As for questions to ask them: I like to ask about the tenure process, university resources for research, grant support (i.e., what programs/services are available), future of department, future of school, etc.
Apparently, the Dean will attend my job talk after our meeting…eeeenteresting!
