What are your general comments?

"We all had two interviewers. My second interview was very laidback and very good. It was very conversational but informative. However, the interview that I started off with was a different story. He analyzed every word I said. He would also act like he took what I said in the most selfish and wrong way possible, forcing me to defend my position and restate my opinions. Every one of my answers were responded with a why? why not? or how? And in the rare occasion when my answer was sufficient, I felt like I made a grave mistake or something. HIGH CONTRASTS between the interviews. (In all fairness, at the end o my first interview, he looked at his watch and said that my torture was over.)" Report Response
