Speaking from experience on both sides, sometimes it is the applicant (I
once had someone tell me he use Red Hat Solaris), sometimes the HR person
processing résumés (lots of .NET and fresh-out-of-college with Java folks
for a Perl job), sometimes the recruiter (had a recruiter push me as being
a "senior Linux admin" even though I'm a Perl programmer), sometimes the
manager (here, take this test with these other two "applicants", oh, wait,
they're actually current employees designed to distract you).
One place I interviewed in the RTP for a Linux admin position, the owner
of the company showed up several hours late to my interview because they
were celebrating the company's yearly anniversary at lunch and "forgot"
about my interview. I won't name names because he's posted to the list in
the past looking to hire but...it didn't rate high on the professionalism
Another place I interviewed, the CTO said, "here are the responsibilities,
how much do you want?" and a week later I was hired.
