    You didn't get the job then?!

    Hey, this might sound a bit mean, but 15 mins late isn't that late you know. They probably had lots of IVs to get through.

    Also, interviewers are often not that interested during iVs - again, it happens quite a lot!! Being grumpy might not even had anything to do with you or might even have been a tactic to see how you coped?? I know it feels bad at the time, but just chalk it up to not being right for you.

    You are quite unusual in naming and shaming though! They will know who you are!! Would advise you to edit this post away...

    I don't really care if they know who I am to be honest. The least a firm can do is to arrive on time for an interview or at least apologise for being late.

    What an unprofessional firm. Interviewers (both partners) arrived 15 minutes late despite the receptionist phoning through 30 minutes beforehand. One interviewer thoroughly grumpy throughout and completely disinterested. No specific feedback given whatsoever. What a complete waste of money and time.
    Once you (singular) realise you (plural) are just an inconvenience for fee earners being pressured to meet targets and make dollah, your expectations will be tempered to a more realistic target of what to expect from firms.

    In any event, 15 minutes is not a long amount of time whatsoever, everyone has their own interview style and as long as they weren't rude, then you have no grounds to complain and most firms operate a 'no feedback policy' for unsuccessful applicants.

    Never heard of a firm which offers no feedback after an interview...

    I was thinking of applying there for a paralegal position. Any tips if I do get an interview? Was it a particularly difficult interview?
