"You are never going to get anywhere with a communications

  degree" "Right now, I am asking the questions. I will tell you when it's YOUR turn to ask a question" "Wow it seems like you are just all about money. Would you say that is correct?" "What makes you think you can walk in here after never working here before and manage people who have been working here for ten or more years?" "You think you are experienced?

Some of these questions would have been legitimate had they been worded differently, or asked in a polite and inquisitive manner.

When I read your post and how your interview went, it sounded strangely familiar, so I went to Linkedin and looked up the person whom I believe interviewed you. Bingo. I was going through the interview process at another company and my experience was much like yours. It was humiliating and unprofessional and unlike anything I'd ever experienced. I feel better knowing it wasn't just me!
