Maybe they saw everything they needed and we're now on to the second
phase. Define abrupt...I hade a CEO that would stand up and walk out of
the middle of the meeting. At first, we thought there was something
wrong. We eventually realized that a meeting is to get or give
information..its not to take up a block of time. When then purpose is
accomplished, the meeting is over, regardless of how many clicks are
left on the clock.

Subject: Ethics of job-interview testing

Yesterday, I had a 15-minute job interview that terminated abruptly. The
president and CEO told me to go home, log into their product via a guest
account, and write up a page or two of documentation for that product.

<paranoid_delusion>They stressed a couple of times that all applicants
would be writing up the same feature. The way they stressed it made me
wonder.</paranoid_delusion>
