What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It is really random what kind of interviewer you get. The majority of interviewers are nice and easy going but I heard from another candidate that he had one last week but the interviewer only spent 12 minutes and hadn't read his file. In the end the so called interview was useless and he had to come back again. Also there are two shifts of interviews, the morning when you meet at 9:45 AM and the afternoon one when you meet at 11:45 AM. Lunch is provided in the form of a meal ticket worth $5.25.
