What are your general comments?

"This was one of, if not the worst interviews I had. The guy brought me into a room the size of a closet, with no windows, and a calendar hanging by a wire hanger. I don't think he asked me anything! He would ask something, get half way through, and the phone would ring. He would sit on the phone for 5 full minutes, and then ask a completely new question...never giving me the chance to answer the first one!! This happened repeatedly until we ran out of time. He never asked me anything, and I never answered. I sat and watched him talk on the phone to colleagues. Terrible. Disrespectful. I came all the way out here and was given zero chance to represent myself. I am now a fourth year med student who has interviewed many people, and have attendings as friends...and realize now how inappropriate that was. Heads up to those interviewing." Report Response
