The Scream

At my last interview, it was different, in that I interviewed with five separate people. I liked this method a lot better. Anyways, heading into my third interview, the coordinator tells me to go into the office. The interviewer is in the corner on the phone, with her back to me. She hangs up, smooths her hair, takes a drink of water, turns around, looks at me and screams at the top of her lungs for a good five seconds. People come running. I am wide eyed and apologetic. She had not heard me come in. Ok, so definitely a memorable start to an interview!
Throughout the interview, I'm having a hard time focusing because all I can think of is her screaming at me, and I have to bite my cheeks to keep from smirking. About halfway through, she asks me a question, I begin to answer, and then she doubles over laughing and says "I'm sorry, I just keep seeing myself screaming at you." At the end, she says "Hmm, maybe I should scream at everyone during their interview to see how they handle themselves. You remained very composed."

Well, that will hands down be my most memorable interview!


  1. OMG what a way to break the ice! I don't think I could kept my composure. I'm sure I would've just started laughing!

    Good luck!!

  2. That is hilarious! Definitely a story you will never forget. Hope interviews are going well! Are you hoping to head to Colorado?
