Even in your reading of the situation, what possible positive outcome will result? At best, the firm realizes that there was a bad interview and chalks it up as such, while changing their interview process/interview rotation.

I don't think you're stupid, naive, or anything negative, but I think you're sympathetic to those going through this process. There will be times when an interviewer/interviewee possibly unfairly judges a candidate, and as a result is doomed from the start. But that doesn't mean the process was inherently unfair/deserving of reconsideration. The OP likely got screwed by the situation, but that doesn't mean much in the hiring process. They need to move on from this slight or injustice and keep applying to firms that will be a better fit.


Fair enough. There are probably better ways for OP to use his/her time. My comment was written from the perspective of a guy who recently wrote an angry letter (accompanied by a check) to the PA Turnpike Authority, accusing them of intentionally not installing card readers at toll booths because they know that most people no longer carry cash, and it gives them cover to charge a $25 administrative fee on a $2.50 unpaid toll in order to solicit revenue for their little racket. Seriously, a $2.50 toll to traverse 10 miles of poorly-maintained highway in rural Pennsylvania? Stingy toll trolls even made me pay postage!

Point is, it accomplished nothing, but it made me feel better... :mrgreen:


Your advice was bad and biased, got it.


And my advice was wrong. Full circle, and all that.

It's time for a revenge power move. Don't answer when they call, and then call back 25 minutes later, saying that you're ready for the interview.

It would be fun if you get an offer and run into your first screener at work. :lol:

Good advice. And here's what OP should do if he gets a callback and runs into the first associate who screened him:
