"The interviews were very casual. The only thing that made one of the interviews a little more stressful than expected was that one of the interviewers was so quiet and spoke so slowly.... it was really hard to get a conversation rolling and to sense what type of impression you were making. I talked to a handful of people that also felt this way." Report Response
