Strange though it may seem, I've made it this far in my career without having a "real" interview in this area. What types of questions should I be expecting? What have you guys been asked that you have found difficult to answer? What are you asked in, it seems, every interview? Do you prepare a presentation of portfolio pieces?

If your company is part of a specific industry, say, financial services, is it important that candidates have knowledge in this area specifically, or is general knowledge of methodology sufficient? What turns you off about candidates? If you expect to see a portfolio online before requesting an interview, what do you do with candidates who can't put portfolio pieces online due to client confidentiality?
