Would you tell me which preposition is suitable, please?

I have been interviewed by/ with [Any company].

Thank you!

Hi Vega,

I would use "by" because it is a passive tense. Please take a look at the following sentences:

1. The house was painted by Jack.
2. All prospective students are interviewed by alumni before a final decision is made.
3. At the end of the race the winner was interviewed by NBC news.
