This was my second interview with a Partner. The case started post a quick 2 min introduction. During the case I followed the structure but got stuck in few places.
Found the interviewer not very helpful, although this may be due to the fact that he was travelling and over the telephonic conversation had few disturbances (voice went blank etc.). I was explaning my thought process however whatever I said was shot down by the interviewer. I could not zero in the cause of the problem and interview ended post 30 mins with interviewer stating that he will get back to the HR.
Post interview anlaysis, I have a feeling that he was making it stressful on purpose unlike the round 1. Moreover, being over the call didn't help me as I could not read his body language.
Any thoughts from the experts would be helpful especially if a stress interview is usual (why would the Partner take a stress interview over a call). Is there any silver lining for me or I should accept a ding (partially I have accepted the ding)?
