What are your general comments?

"I was supposed to be there at noon, but i arrived at 9am. I was a nervous wreck for 3 hours. Then at noon there was a one hour orientation that calmed my nerves, then interviews started. I got the last time slot and again was a nervous wreck for 2 hours. During the interview some of the questions caught me off guard and required me to think on my feet. Because i didn't sound too sure on some answers, i feel that may have negatively affected me." Report Response
