The first interview was with a Portuguese interviewer and he was a common sense and reasonable person. The questions were easy and I answered them well. I passed the interview and received an email the next day to schedule a second interview. The second interview was with an Indian working in Singapore, who sat stiffly to the side the entire time, consistently giving me angry looks and an arrogant demeanor. He asked me questions about working for clients after office hours. I replied that I could work long hours if I got a very competitive salary. He didn't really understand my experience and tech skills, he just wanted someone who would work dumb for long hours without complaining. He was the worst interviewer I have ever experienced.
