Why do interviewers routinely ask "How do you deal with DIFFICULT people?"

I think the purpose is to find out if you are combative or not. If your answ involves arguing of any type your combative. Its all BS and a process of elimination.

Second Interview - What does it mean?

Them saying there will be a second interview could be a way of blowing you off. Thats to get you out of the office. Keep applying to other jobs. Never believe what they say. Ever.
