Would you respect someone that acts like a jerk to impress you?

My wife and I had a business dinner tonight with members of my wife's office staff and a prospective new hire candidate and her husband. This is the second time I have had the opportunity to meet this couple. The husband was kind of arrogant the last time we had met, but his behavior was tolerable. This evening he was a total jerk, correcting his wife and talking down to her as if she were beneath him, treating the restaurant staff poorly, and acting as if he were in some way superior to those around him in an effort to impress the partners. When did being a jerk become impressive?

    The wife was the candidate not the husband. He was just along for the ride. He acted as if he were the one being reviewed for employment.
