Showing up either way too early or late. If your late for an interview and don't call you might as well just no go at all. Also talking negative about your last job.

Being very nervous. It give a impression to the interviewer that you are not confident enough. Dressing inappropriately also set bad impression to them. I think the way you present yourself during a interview is very important.

a big one is not dressing appropriatly for the interview. I don't care if you are interveiwing for a job flipping burgers at McDonalds, you should arrive with a neat clean appearence, and NO JEANS please......i am not saying you need to show up in a suit....or even with a tie on for goodness sakes, but a nice clean dress shirt/blouse and a clean, non-wrinkled pair or pants or skirt. Obviously being on time is important as well as you said.
