What are your general comments?

"The interview was about 75% the interviewer asking me what I wanted to know which was unexpected. She only asked a few questions. Overall, the interview went well once I adjusted to the fact that I would be asking most of the questions and basically controlling the direction of the interview. Only after I introduced something I had done would she respond with a question about it! " -Posted 10/03/2002 | Report Response
