Yes, there are actual studies about it. Being first also helps because everyone else is compared against you, so if you go well, it's harder for others to impress interviewers

Just finished a product strategy interview. It was difficult. The interviewer's countenance did not help either ... Seemed like he was confused on what to ask me towards the end. Google seems to have a system where your resume is input and it spits out questions and that system failed me during my interview. I really want to protest the interview but I don't think it'll fly .
