If a person is going to experience intimidation and pressure in the job itself, then perhaps it is useful to see how applicants deal with it during the interview.

    Perhaps this is true, but I have never seen a more cocky and arrogant interviewer in this case. My post did not reflect that clearly. He was clearly trying to justify his credentials and rank, tooting his own horn, etc. When I am on an interview, they are interviewing me, but I am also interviewing them -- these are the people you are going to work for, after all, and it goes both ways. If *they* have problems working with others, it's just as bad if someone else does. Similarly, if they don't know their stuff, and they are team lead -- you should be very afraid -- but you have to be subtle, and learn this by observation and by basic questions -- you can't get aggressive like they are allowed to be, as you are the interviewee.

    Don't just land a job at all costs -- you want to want the job too. Else you'll just be unhappy. No amount of money makes unhappy worth it, which is a lesson we all eventually learn the hard way.
