Job interviews (smart company brochures and expected feedback)


I have had a few job interviews in the past month and I have noticed 2 trends at the end of interviews:

-The companies seem to give out smart (and expensive) looking brochures about themselves and their activities.

What is the point of that??? If I really want information about the company I can look on the Internet...and I doubt that I will be very interested in the company if I don't get hired. So what is the point of giving these brochures out to all the candidates. It seems like a huge waste of paper. The worst is that you can't really say "No thanks, I don't want your brochure" because then you can be sure to have blown your chances of being chosen.

-The interviewers always seem to ask for feedback about the interview.

FFS what are they expecting??? Do they really think that the candidate is in a good position to provide honest feedback about the interview? Of course I could say something like "you spent half an hour explaining some generality about the company without really explaining what I would actually be expected to do" but I don't because at that point I still hope to get the job.
