I recently interviewed for a TT position and had a mostly positive campus experience. At the end of my interview, when it was my turn to pose questions to the hiring committee, I asked what they enjoyed most about being part of this department / faculty / university. One began to list positive traits and then said “unlike university of X where I used to work” and began to speak negatively of said university - a second panel member then also began to make snide comments about this institution that they had also previously worked at. I found this highly unprofessional and it gave me a negative impression of them. Am I overthinking this? Is this normal behaviour?
I am due to receive feedback soon on my interview (unsuccessful) and I feel deep down that I should bring this up if asked to provide feedback myself. I also don’t want to burn any bridges. Really frustrating.
*Edited for further context: I already had an offer for another role when interviewing for this role.
