What impressed you negatively?

What are your general comments?

"I was really nervous - it was my first - but my interviewers really did just want to get to know me. They will talk to you about anything you are open too. You MUST be able to laugh at yourself. Not only did I make a joke that NO ONE laughed at, but I fell over in my heels, almost slid down the handicap ramp, and ran into a bar I thought was a revolving door along the tour. These things happen ^.^ " Report Response
