    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at General Bearing.

    Interview

    The HR person seemed professional, but any professionalism seemed to begin and end with her. I was ushered into a room where I waited to meet with the department manager and some executive ( never did get the guy's title, much less his name) who apparently was never told that a candidate was going to be interviewed at that time, and came in complaining that he was pulled out of an important meeting, which he then apparently decided to take out on me. He started by ridiculing my resume, then drilling me on company procedures for handling different problems related to the position, to which I explained how I had handled these situations at other companies, and he told me that I was wrong. I did manage to convey that since I do not work for General Bearing, I could not tell him how his company expected me to handle any of the situations he presented, as I expected to be advised of company procedures specific to the position after being hired and during onboarding and orientation, terms that I am sure he didn't understand, and he left after complaining how I had wasted his time. Had I simply interviewed with the person actually in charge of the department, who did manage to speak to me about what the job actually entailed, which turned out to be far beneath my experience level, meaning I would have been an asset to the company since I had more experience than they required, I may have actually shown enough interest in the position to be hired.
    Of course, I will never know how long I would have lasted there if I had been hired, since I have to assume the executive's attitude and mentality was representative of the general corporate culture.
