    Default meaning

    She had an stress interview, a type of job interview that features tough, tricky questions, long silences, and negative evaluations of the candidates.
    Can you give one example for each of bold parts? Tricky question and negative evaluation.

    Not a teacher only a native.


    I'd just like to point out that it should be 'She had a stressful interview.'

    Tricky questions - questions that are hard to answer, or ones that are designed to catch you out.

    Negative evaluation
    - where your weaknesses are revealed and highlighted. In this situation it could be the candidate was poor at maths, so the evaluator said 'I see your numeracy skills are weak.'

    Hope this helps, please ask if you need clarification.
