Do intense interviews usually reflect a toxic work culture? I’ve been interviewing with multiple companies and I feel like some I can tell they were excited about me vs others i felt were more condescending. Both wanted to move me forward but I do feel that interviews is a two way street.

I had this recently, too. With one company I felt like I was being grilled and wasting their time (like they didn’t think I was even remotely qualified), yet they kept moving me along to higher interviews. After the first two rounds being the same I decided it was NOT the company for me and I bowed out. Interviews are definitely a two way street!

Just accepted an offer as a project delivery specialist.

The project I’m on is slated to last 3-4 years and I’m not necessarily trying to “find a home” at Deloitte or the big four, in general.
