"Great day overall. Specifically, the two interviews were significantly different from one another. The first interviewer asked cookie-cutter questions to which I had cookie-cutter answers. The second interviewer asked more probing, what-did-you-learn-about-yourself-through-this-experience type of questions. The second interview, by the nature of the questions, was more difficult to feel good about. Both interviewers were friendly and non-invasive." Report Response
