Two very cold, very stoic men interviewed me. I wasn't asked "can you tell us about yourself?" They just jumped in to behavioral questions-- and after two or three, introduced themselves. It was very intimidating. I knew they didn't want to hire me the moment I walked into the room. My recruiter did a search of their names on Linkedin, and the two men who interviewed me weren't even managers for the department I would potentially be working in. They were on IT end. My recruiter apologized for the experience, and needless to say, I didn't get a job offer.
