What are your general comments?

"I felt like my interviewers were playing good cop bad cop. Every answer I gave was wrong or not good enough and at one point the interviewer slammed their hand on the desk and said "How are you going to fix it(healthcare)?!" I guess they were trying to make me flustered but, the interviewer came off looking like a jerk. Everytime I was asked a question the interviewer looked at the clock or stared at their phone. So not only were my answers all wrong but apparently boring as well. The other interviewer came to my defense a couple times which then turned the question into more of a discussion between all of us. But as soon as I thought everything was better I'd get slammed again. Maybe because I was interviewing towards the end of the process and they were really trying to weed people out. But it was very stressful just be ready to defend every answer." -Posted 04/18/2004 | Report Response
