What are your general comments?

"At first very intimidating. My first interviewer was very very serious. But at the end of the interview he finally cracked a smile and told me I gave a good interview so if it happens to you, don't stress, might just be the person's interview style. The second interviewer was also known for being serious but I didn't find that to be the case. He was pretty laid back and very nice." -Posted 01/22/2006 | Report Response
