How to respond to a rude interviewer?
« on: August 31, 2014, 10:01:19 AM »

If the interviewer is rude to you it can be hard to know what to do. In the interview situation itself then being rude back is never going to go down well. However, noting their behaviour and how they respond to you answering in a calm and collected manner could be useful.

If the person will be your boss, then you might want to consider how you would feel working for someone who has an attitude like this. They might just be seeing how you respond under pressure or they might actually be like it.

Has anyone experienced this and how did you react?

I have. It was an interview I had taken a few years ago and I still remember it. The first interview went really well, but then she took me to meet their CEO for a final and he was the rudest guy. It was obvious he was trying to intimidate me, but I've dealt with that kind of personality from people in that kind of position before, so I just sat there and ignored his rudeness. The minute I got home, though, I called the girl I interviewed with first and made an excuse about a conflict with my school schedule to take myself out of the running because I knew it wouldn't have been a good fit if I had to work in that environment.
