    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Abcam (Boston, MA (US)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    S. called from HR in Boston, I called back and he returned that call minutes later. I had a stupid error on my resume, which he took as the basis to suspiciously question me as if I was trying to deceive him. This set the tone for the entire interview. He wasn't outright mocking me, but he did lecture me 3 times for no apparent reason other than to make me feel ignorant and assert his dominance rather than ask me what I meant or to clarify what I said. He was like a cop in an interrogation room asking me why I am so nervous. In fairness, it went bad immediately and I never fully recovered.

    He said they had a surprising number of candidates and he knew how he felt about my suspicious "lack of formal training" before he called, so why didn't he just delete my resume?

    Definitely a low water mark for me, but I haven't had to go through other jaded, fully corporate HRs officers yet. I did learn quite a bit from the experience and made a few changes to my resume.
