If i answer a question and they ask for an elaboration... Does that mean i automatically failed/lost points?
It is suggested to stay in one thread. You are asking the same questions in various threads.
Okay, dude, seriously. You need to relax. Caaaaalm down. You aren't interviewing for Top Secret security clearance or something, this isn't a life-or-death situation. You really need to stop looking at the small details. Don't focus so hard on the trees that you can't see the forest.
On this question: If they don't ask you probing questions, THEY have failed the interview. No initial answer should ever be enough. Even if they get as much as they wanted to from the question, they need to ask you more and find out how you respond to followups, whether or not you can think on your feet, etc. An interviewee who has the greatest answers in the world prepared, but can't elaborate or tell the interviewer about the situation from a different angle, is an interviewee who shouldn't be hired. And an interviewer who doesn't try to find out if that's the kind of an interviewee he's dealing with has no place being an interviwer.
thank you lol. I think I just felt uneasy about the interview because I have become used to target's management being friendly and having some sort of personality, but this particular interviewer wasnt like that at all. I was trying to build rapport as I always do an interviews, and one question that I asked was how long he has been with the company and he was like "i don't know.. a long time... It has been a while". Then I asked him what the top 3 qualities are that they look for and he said "that changes from day to day". most people I have spoken with sound like they are excited to work for the company and they have so much to say, but he was just very short and I figured that I must have done something wrong so I started picking apart my interview
