Heard a great story the other day.
The team was interviewing a key candidate for a very important creative role. The candidate was truly of the 1% of 1% type, with major awards that almost anyone could name to his credit (Oscars, Emmys, Tonys etc). In other words, you don't see this one every day, let alone more than a handful of times in a career.
The team had all gone through behavioral interviewing training a couple weeks back. So, they were all eager to put their learning to good use. And they did.
The team leader was the last of the team to interview, and the first thing he asked the candidate was how the interviews had gone. And the candidate let him have it with both barrels. He had politely answered the EXACT SAME questions that the prior four interviewers had asked with EXACTLY THE SAME answers. The candidate felt that the whole process had been a gigantic waste of time, and he was done with the interview. Fortunately, the team leader was able to calm the candidate down, re-engage him, and long story short, they ended up hiring this amazing candidate.
Would you have walked out of the interview under the same circumstances?
