    attended an interview with the interviewer?

    A is the interviewer and B is the interviewee. Could I say "B attended an interview with A last Friday."?
    Thank you!

    No, As written, it sounds as if they went to an interview together.

    For your meaning, I would say "B had an interview with A last Friday."

    If B and A were a journalist and an official respectively, would B and A be the interviewer and interviewee respectively?

    Hard to say. If B were known to be the journalist, it would be more clear as "B interviewed A".
