What are your general comments?

"I really liked it more than i thought i would. there were two seperate 15 min interveiws. the initial interviewer had me stressed because they were pretty expressionless so I couldn't get a good read on how i was doing from them. the second interview was a million times more laid back and was pretty much just a conversation. they even said at the end that they were impressed by me though I'm not sure if that's what they say to all the prospectives or if it'll even count that much towards the final decision. But we'll see." Report Response
