If you're in a job interview and realize that you really don't want to work there, the best thing to do is stand up, apologize for wasting their time because you just will not be a good fit in their organization and leave.

I once had an interview at a hotel at an airport. The interviewer was going to be the boss. He got really combative with me in the interview. As I was walking out, he was screaming that he determined when the interview was over, not me.

No way he was gonna be my boss.


Yeah, I had an interview for a place that looked like it might have been a good job, But the interviewer /boss had been in the Marines, and made comments about the fact that was in the "Chair Force"... I got the feeling right away that he wasn't going to respect me as a person, and I wasn't too concerned that they never called me back.
