What do you do when the person you are scheduled to interview with bails and has your future peers and directs interview you instead in a 15 on 1 in a conference room?
Years ago, I applied for a senior manager position with a company managing web content delivery. The job was reporting to a director. When I arrived for the interview, the director's admin met me, said that the director was unavailable, and that I should sit down for a moment and wait because they were putting something together for me.
Fifteen minutes later, I was escorted into a conference room to sit at the head of a large table with about 15 other people. They were going to be my peers and my directs. All of them had been given my resume and one of my past performance reviews (the job was an attempt to move inside the same company).
I don't agree with how I handled it at the time. What would you do when faced with this situation?
