    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at The Acquisition Group (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Unprofessional. Horrible office space. Arrogant and disrespectful interviewer.

    They contacted me through Indeed to schedule an interview for the next day and offered different slots. I emailed them the same day early in the afternoon with the slot selected and they didn't confirm until the day of the interview a few hours before.
    The office had wrinkled paper signs everywhere and once again showing complete disregard for my time, the interviewer was 15min late even though the office was empty.
    He walked in with an arrogant attitude and led me to a room where the paint was literally falling off the walls. When asked about what the company does, all he did was name drop Telus every 5 seconds being abstract about everything else. After probing him about the company a few times, he kept going in circles to the point I just didn't care anymore.

    He was incredibly rude and aggressive. I can't emphasize enough how arrogant and disrespectful he was, attacking every answer, my character, career path and education. I had to stop the interview, because at that point no matter what they were willing to pay me, it would have not been enough for me to want to work or be associated with such a horrible unprofessional person.

    I usually research companies on Glassdoor before I go to interviews, but due to the short notice I didn't get a chance to do so. I wish I had, worst interview experience of my life.
