What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewer was very monotonous and disinterested. He asked questions from a list and would not even make eye contact while I spoke. He kept typing on his computer that was placed between me and him and this added to the stress.

I kept speaking while the interviewer kept staring at his computer screen, and went on typing." Report Response
