Dear Baker Hostetler, you guys were hands down the rudest interviewers I've had out of my 11 callbacks. Please tell your partners not to be so abrasive, thank you.

It was NY. I don't want to go into explicit details and I'm sure everyone has run into a rude interviewer or two but my interviewer violently questioned everything on my resume as if I made it up. The truth was that he/she was an upper middle class Caucasian American and couldn't understand that someone else could possibly accomplish so much or overcome this much adversity at such a young age so therefore I HAD to be lying.

Afterward, another interviewer belittled my prior line of work. I left there feeling like the scum of the earth...

To be fair, some of the associates were really nice. It's fine because I ended up getting a V20 offer and a few V50s but I actually really liked Baker Hostetler from talking to my interviewer at OCI and a few other people working there. It's funny how one or two bad apples could ruin everything.

I had a very similar experience with one of their partners at OCI.
