What are your general comments?

"I went into this interview pretty excited and was a little dissapointed. I had two interviews, one with a man who had to be over 90 and talked so slowly i almost couldnt tell if he was done with his question or just pausing to catch his breath. The older man was at least nice. My second interviewer was condescending and rude. He would ask a question, I would answer it. He would give me a puzzled look and in an annoyned tone say ''let me rephrase'' and then ask the exact same thing. He grilled me about why a particular drug was used on a certain disorder on a study i worked on, he wanted drug mechanism, which thank god i had studied randomly before the interview and knew. He seemed impressed after that and ended the interview." Report Response
