I’m surprised you think they would have the time to be browsing these forums when, as you say, they fail to update their website with relevant information about the interview. To confirm: I don’t work for TPP - I haven’t even graduated.
I agree there are jobs which would put you under more pressure, like consultancy firms, and I also doubt they’d be nearly as rude. My argument would be TPP are still establishing themselves and, as a way of doing that, require their employees to be building new working relationships all the time - some very difficult. You work for someone like PwC, on the other hand, you’re going to be (generally) dealing with clients they’ve been working with for years, and so you’d expect to be treated with respect before anything. I think the governments recently made it compulsory firms change their auditors at least once every 15 years for that reason - because firms like PwC, KPMG and EY get comfortable in their long-standing relationships with clients and don’t do their job properly (as we’ve seen with the coop bank).
I didn’t mean to belittle your experience - it sounds pretty brutal and i can’t be sure i’d be able to handle it myself. Maybe the guys who were instructed to ‘toughen you up’ went a little too far. Its a shame because TPP may have been the place for you - at least you found something else. More then anything I’m probably just trying to convince myself this is still the company for me, as I’ve been looking into them for years.
