Engineering Interview

San Mateo, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Guidewire in May 2012.

Interview Details – Interview was terminated prematurely by one interviewer. No reasons given.
Had positive impression of first interviewer, second interviewer was terrible:
a. full of himself
b. good talker but terrible listener (talks all the time, and cut you off while you're answering questions, or jump to conclusions as soon as you speak 2 sentences)
c. rude and cocky

Would not work there even if given an offer if the position involve working with such a person.
