What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview so I didn't know what to expect. It turned out to be very interactive and more like a drawn out conversation.

I actually enjoyed the interview because it felt really personal, and the interviewers seemed to care what I had to say. Overall, a very positive experience." Report Response
