I usually hire the guy with the 3" long chewed up pencil and no eraser.

Extra points for ragged fingernails.

If he shows up late he gets a signing bonus.

+1 to a simple Cross or a Parker Jotter. The cross is like the Lexus of pens, ie it's fairly generic, not truly flashy or luxury but just that next level up from your basic el cheapo. The Jotter's more like a cheap generic but actually very reliable and smooth pen, like say a Honda. I go for the former, but have felt bad losing them. The latter come in packs...

my current (from Office Depot here in Toronto), a slim Cross in brushed (not so flashy) silver (note it's quite slim so if you have big hands it might feel too small): Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Cross.

 

Simple, sleek, and classy.

I love these things. I have a couple right now, steel, light olive, and navy. Great option for a professional looking pen that will last and won't break the bank. I have nicer pens, I have prettier pens, but use those the most.

As for cross, theirs seem to break on me (okay, I've had two, so small sample). The twisting mechanism siezes up, I twist a little too hard, and buh bye. They have a warranty, but it's $10 and not really worth the effort.

To the OP: unless you are interviewing for a highly paid executive position (in which case you would not be asking) who gives a shit ??? ...

Not that the type of pen actually matters, but a Zebra R-301 is unpretentious but good-looking, and only about $10. I used the smaller version of that pen, and I liked it until I lost it.

Actually, I've met great financial analysts that chew their pencils to pieces. I prefer Parker pens myself, good bang for the buck.
