What impressed you negatively?

"Student interviewer was in it for the free lunch (which he promptly admitted to me). He asked 3 questions in between bites of bad tuna salad and answered my questions (which took way more time than his) tersely. He was obviously going through first-year syndrome (stressed, depressed, etc.) They shouldn't let first years interview at all. "Faculty" interview was with an admissions staff member."
