Maybe I missed something key, but how can we have
advice to give on this? The interview was "terminated
abruptly" after a very few, "15," minutes for reasons
that the applicant is not comfortable discussing.

Uuuuum. Surely we need more info. here.

Maybe the ceo is a psycho? Maybe the poster is? 15
minutes is not enought time for me to learn about a
company I am interviewing ... you?
