Despite knowing fierce and invasive questioning should not happen, you got sucked in, it happened and now you are worried about consequences. Biased opinion, unfair employment concerns, maybe a hint of possible identity theft with a whiff of fear from spreading poisonous rumors may come to mind. Bothered? Troubled? Let's clear your mind.
Interviews Are Two-Way Conversational Traffic
Both parties at the meet up should be keen to know more about each other (like a date!)
There should have been conversations on many topics. Questions. Talks to see if you fit them and for you to see if they fit you.
The interviewer is not your audience. You are not a parading, dancing monkey.
Remember, you are not here to perform or act. Interviews are a matchmake and compatibility session. You have every right to ask, question and hammer at their heads (figuratively) as they have.
Likely you were prepared for the common questions, but their bombardment of nearly interrogative questions took you by surprise
Skip, If The Interview Hasn't Happened Yet
If the interview is upcoming and you haven't gone down for the meeting yet, it can be better to give the interview a miss. These kinds of employers, bosses and probably coworkers too aren't worth your time at best. And at worst, you could be jumping in head-first into a really toxic environment.
Consider skipping the interview.
There are other jobs out there. Alternative opportunities that can be way better.
What's done is done.
No use crying over spilt milk. Now is the time to recollect and write down every, single, thing you've shared and over-shared in the interview.
Count the beans spilled.
You've already leaked info, more than you are possibly comfortable with. By tabulating the info, you end up assessing the "net" destructive force of your own words.
Chances of Bad Leaks
Use probability and care less about the worse case scenario.
Spreading falsehoods take time and effort. Info you find juicy 🍑 may not be juicy to the ears of others. Why? Have you played pass the message using the string and cup game? Meaning gets distorted as words are relayed from person to person. And in our case here, if the info is seen to be news-worthy or potentially useful (or destructive) to the receiving party then info is unlikely to be disseminated out.
Consider which piece of info could be a real threat to you. Then give it a percentage % chance that info will go out.
Cut Your Losses
Zip that lip of yours. Maybe play dumb if they call back and ask for confirmation of facts. Should they throw fresh punches at you in a followup interview - detract, deny and disassociate yourself from the unhealthy.
Painful lessons learned today are painful consequences avoided tomorrow.
Try to change the topic away from these rubbish questions.
