I am going through a fairly involved interviewing process with a top notch company. They are ranked pretty high on the Forbes list of companies to work for.
I have been through 6 phone interviews and am expecting a call back for the final panel presentation.
I believe that 5 out of the 6 interviews went really well. I closed all of them and was told that I would be getting a positive disposition from all the interviewers.
The sixth interview did not go so well. I was supposed to interview with this person whom I was going to be working with in the short-term. This person was new (4-weeks) to the company themselves. The following are the high(low)lights of the interview.
- The person arrived 25 minutes late to a 45 minute interview
- After the first few questions I could tell that they had not even read my resume
- The questions were based on a presumption of me having experience in certain industries that I had not even indicated on my resume.
- Unnecessarily hard-charging
- When I closed at the end, I received a full 30 seconds of silence at the other end of the line
I don't think this interview will derail my process but I have soured somewhat on this company for putting me in front of this person.
How do I handle this going forward? Do I speak about my experience to the recruiter or the hiring manager? I am pretty sure I will get a bad disposition from this person but I doubt it will result in me being rejected from the process. Should I just let it go?
