What are your general comments?

"The day overall was good - a lot of presentations about the school, their vision, etc which was useful. However my faculty interview left me with a really poor impression. The person would ask me a question, I would start answering, then (s)he'd cut me off and as an unrelated question. The questions were also kind of weird - eg: I said I ran 3-4X a week, (s)he then asked, oh not 7X a week?? I said I organized an event, (s)he then said, were you just a point person or the overall coordinator? It left me with the feeling that I was constantly being tested, and after being interrupted the 5th time, I got really annoyed and said something like if you would let me finish my thoughts, I'd be able to answer that question. Not the best interview etiquette but by that time, I was pretty irritated! (S)he didn't seem interested in what I had to say. However I think I had a unique interviewed b/c other people said theirs was conversational and low-key. The students seemed nice, stopped to converse with us, and the location is amazing! Going in, this was def. my top choice and still is up there, but the interview left me with a bad impression I didn't expect. Guess I'll start scheduling my other interviews now!" Report Response
