What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewers were an hour late because 2 of them forgot/ didn't know they were interviewing me. Then, I get in there with only 2 because the third didn't show and in the middle of my answer to a very emotional question, one of the receptionists knocks on the door, interrupting the flow of my dialogue, introduces a substitute interviewer (30 mins into the interview) then walks out. Then, I'm expected to regain my momentum and fervor all the while impressing a third guy who has absolutely no idea who i am or what I'm talking about. Very well done, UW! At least i was able to show my ability to perform well under stress/pressure! :)" Report Response
