Besides the insulting and possibly illegal nature of the comment, it indicated a deeper problem from their end -- the person then followed up by saying, "I've been here 8 years and I can't keep up with our products." I was tempted to say, "Then it seems you are the one who is burned out," but I refrained, though I came away believing that was the case. If interviewers are so poorly trained to follow legal requirements, ask meaningful questions and adhere to civil behavior, it's hard to trust the company as a place to invest your mind and sweat.
