What are your general comments?

"I really don't want to be one of those people who blames a bad interview on the interviewer but in this case it's hard not to. I read an earlier feedback and a fellow interviewee described his interviewer as a "demon from the abyss below" I am quite sure that his comment was based on this particular interviewer. She was rude and negative and just really put me down. I'm confident that other interviewees who had her feel the same way as I do. At one point, she asked about my thoughts on how to resolve the HMO crisis. As soon as I started to answer she loudly smacks her hand on the table and proceeds to yell "NO! THAT WON'T DO ANYTHING!" I had barely gotten a sentence out and it also happens to be an issue that the U.S. government has barely been able to solve so give me a break lady." Report Response
