In what situation should a project manager be interviewing an Art Director?

I've seen that being a project manager is a common exit, but I'm wondering if that's a dead end career wise. Can you pivot to product managment, something in operations, internal strategy group, or just boomerang back to consulting? For context, I'm interviewing at a bank for a PM role and wondering what my options are, assuming I land the gig, if it turns out I don't like the bank / team. Any insight or perspective would be greatly appreciated. TIA!

He steamrolled the whole thing and I never even got to open my mouth. He apologized to me via slack during the meeting, but still proceeded to bogart the conversation.
