What are your general comments?

"Like I said above, i was really surprised by the difficulty of the interviews. I think it was just bad luck that I got two "hard" interviewers. My first interviewer asked me a ton of healthcare questions which I think I answered really well and we ended up talking a whole hour about stuff like that. He ended up walking me to my next interview which was nice. The second interviewer was even tougher, he pretty much looked at my file and started giving me questions relating to my character and others about healthcare and specific questions about things in my file. Overall, I was really surprised about how hard the interviewers were." Report Response
