What are your general comments?

"My interview did not go as conversationally as others have reported theirs went, so I think it depends on your interviewers. It felt more like a Q&A. They spent about half the time asking me 2-3 questions and to my surprise, didn't go into any details about my past experiences or any other ''typical'' interview questions. Then, the other half of the time, I was expected to ask questions. I was very prepared for this part, so be sure that you are too." Report Response
