Job Interview oddness

[ #39645 ]

$work has been advertising for a new testing position and i've been doing the role of assessment of technical skills of the prospective employees.

i've been a bit surprised when interviewees reach into their bag, pull out a folder of paper and offer to show me documents from their previous/current job.

Part of me wants to enquire "So, how do you think your previous/current employer feels about you showing their internal policies and procedures to external parties, and are you going to show us the same courtesy if/when you leave us?"

I can't quite figure out how to say that without it sounding like "you've got 10 seconds to leave the building before i call the cops you thieving $#@&!!!!!"

The other part of me is thinkin' "Maybe this is just me being paranoid/super-sensitive/dumb about trade secrets, and i should just get over myself"

Which certainly seems the case when i consult my co-workers.... i dunno, it just seems odd to me.
