Unfortunately, some companies take this to an extreme. I had someone tell me
once that they were required to ask exactly the same questions of every
interviewee, no more, no less. This was frustrating because you do want to
get to know someone in an interview because you will be working with them
(most likely) on a very personal level. Not being able to just let the
conversation flow was quite frustrating.
