I definitely feel that as a prospective employee you should see what the
existing materials are like, or furthermore see the product that the
company is producing.

I went on an interview once and talked with the site's manager. The company
produced a commercial database for members of the US Senate and House of
Representatives. She hyped the company and their market performance, yadda
yadda. When I asked her if I could see the existing documentation or
application she firmly said "It's proprietary...I can't show you anything
until you're hired." I decided at that point I didn't want to work for such
a company. I can understand DOD work or other products that are sensitive,
but not this. Or a company should at least have something to show people
besides print advertisements.
