The thing that impressed me the most is the fact that I was asked questions about diagnosing and clinical techniques. I was asked to explain how to differentiate between two diagnosis that have similar symptoms. I have worked in several other mental health settings in two different states and this was the first time that I have been asked clinical questions in an interview. (It would make sense that clinical knowledge would be assessed at an interview for a therapist position, but this has not been my experience.)
