They started off with asking me an illegal question, which was "Where are you from?" which I made the mistake of telling them and I really felt that the lead engineer used that as a strong bias against me and probably assumed political affiliations onto me which I don't actually carry. What state I'm from shouldn't influence my ability to do the work especially since the company I'm applying for is in that state! At another point I was asked to "sell to him" why I wanted the position and why I wanted to work for the company; I'm applying for technical positions, not sales!
Overall, I didn't like the way I was treated. I felt like I was being talked down to even though the interview took place while sitting. I didn't appreciate the illegal questions and the consequential biases that came with it. Less
