Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Enjoyed the interview, but in most part simply because she was a very sweet, old lady who seemed quite impressed with my record. Really liked the people I met (don't know if it's widespread, or just the people they show the interviewees), hated the area, the weather was as expected. The interview itself consisted of the person reading my file to me and telling me she liked me. Flattering, but she's the kind of sweet old lady who I could see doing that just because she's sweet. So it goes." Report Response
