What are your general comments?

"This is a very long day, but definitely worth it. I was a little nervous going in because of what some previous posts said about the interview process and it was my first interview of the year. I found the interview extremely enjoyable and relaxing. Both interviewers made me feel at ease. The interviews were conversational, mostly, and the questions just flowed from what was said."
