Never do that , it indicates that you are not interested in the job

Interview is not a formality or a ritual or an exam. The time is gone that just because companies need resources they will pick up any sincere candidate and train them on job later. Now, companies not just are selective in terms of technical skills, but also the cognitive abilities of the candidates along with their soft skills. This makes cracking interviews tougher, and on the learner side, every interview should be a learning process. Appear for an interview, only if you are going to pen down all the questions, re-think where you could have answered better and where you can improve. Else, it’s a waste of time.

No, shows a lack of interest and respect.

Request your interviewer to take the call during a time and date in which you can sit down and focus in a quiet space.
Make sure you are available at the time of the interview.
No, it is not recommended to take the call in a public place.

Am curious how can this situation ever happen in the first place? I mean, usually, interviews are scheduled beforehand, so that one can be sure they have the time, space, and mental capacity to attend the interview without distractions. I have rarely ever heard of a surprise interview, which catches one off-guard at a public place.

Nevertheless, it is sage advice to not attend an interview in a public place. If one does get stuck in this unlikely scenario, they should request a reschedule.

Honestly it depends. Saying a no to any interviewer might be a put off. Be very polite to them and explain the situation, make sure you tell them you are interested but due to unforeseen circumstances not able to do. Call them back as soon as possible so that the lead is still remains alive. Cause after all, first impression does play a role.
