    'I will have an interview with Tom at 2pm.'

    Re: Expression about an interview

    In my opinion, the person saying it is the interviewee.

    The interviewer, Tom, would say 'I'm interviewing Bebroad at 2pm'.

    I agree that your interpretation and alternative are more likely. However, I think it's possible for the interviewer to say the original.
