What are your general comments?

"My general impression was alright. While the other people that I met were very nice, my interviewer kind of soured the experience. He conducted the interview in the psych ER, on a couch in a small office. He was interrupted several times and was completely unprepared to interview me. I had to rehash my entire application over with him, and even so, I don't think he had all of the facts straight. He also read off the questions, and in general is ill-suited for conducting interviews. He left no time for questions. The facilities are standard and institutional. " Report Response
