What are your general comments?

"All-in-all, pretty relaxed. They both last about 30 minutes. My first interviewer was kind of sensitive (if that makes any sense at all) and asked some really weird questions. My second interviewer pretty much summed up my whole thought process and talked the whole time, really awesome experience there. The tour was nice but a little overdone. The only negative thing was that it lasted until 5:30 and I had to drive back to Baton Rouge for work the next day. Very long drive on a deserted 150 mile stretch of road. Overall a very good experience, don't stress out." Report Response
