Had a Zoom interview where I was told that the only reason I got the interview was out of courtesy for the person who sent them my work.

Drop their name so I never interview with them. Or at least the agency

“And I’m only on this interview because that person made the company sound like a positive place.”

Not sure if I respect the honesty, or resent the the condition of our vocation. Sorry about your experience OP, maybe next time.

Still better than the interview I had a while back where they kept telling me I didn’t have a masters like the rest of the team so it’s unlikely they will move forward. Like why waste everyone’s time

Could've been a test to see how you'd react. Could be they're an insecure person who once heard someone say that and now assumes that's just something CD's say. Could be just cold, oblivious honesty. In any case it looks like you'd dodge a bullet by not working for this person. Sorry that it happened to you, hope something much better comes along.

A hard read? From where I’m sitting it’s pretty clear he has no interpersonal skills. But nice you are giving him the benefit of the doubt.

Omg. You are hilarious. And have a VERY good attitude. What a stupid thing to reveal? And for all they know you could get in and crush it. I hope you do!!!! Let us know what happens.
