Basing on my previous question and one comment in it, I would like to ask another one:
Let's assume I had a bad interview. It was a typical stress interview as if the interviewers were following these guidelines:
Some stressful situations examples include sighing or interrupting candidates while they are talking. Or, you might act aloof by not paying attention to the candidate. Another strategy is repeating the same question multiple times to compare the candidate’s answers or see if they begin getting frustrated. Some interviewers ask obscure questions about random topics they don’t expect candidates to know the answers to.
You can also convey a stressful environment through your body language. For example, you might refuse to shake the candidate’s hand or avoid making eye contact.
The interviewers interrupted me, put facts from my CV into question, were more interested in their cell phones than in me.
Does it automatically mean the company is a toxic place to work in or is it an acceptable way to check how candidates react to stress, which tells nothing about the company culture?
It's not a question about opinions. Media reported last week about research that shows brainteasers tell nothing about candidates' skills but a lot about people's asking them having narcissistic tendencies. That's why I'm curious whether a similar relationship can be concluded for stress interviews (brainteasers are sometimes part of stress interviews of course) and the fact that a company employs this strategy is a warning sign about its culture.
