The reason I brought this up is that I an interviewing someone who trains these exercises to failure.

IMHO, deadlift is hard to maintain proper form - at least for me. I have to make sure I sink my butt down until my shins hit the bar, and push my chest out before every rep. It's hard for me to do that on multiple rep sets, so...I only do singles.

Personally, I would fear training deadlift to failure with 400+ pounds.
