What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewers were completely canned. They were not listening to me, they were more interested in posing the next, rehearsed question. Not very friedly either. The facilities are old and run down. Parking is a nightmare. I definitely got the sense that there was no way in hell that I was getting in after the interview. If the staff truly does read this, here is a review for you (we're always getting evaluated, but you need to be as well!)- treat us with respect. You should adopt the attitude that your working for us (the interviewee); not vic-versa. You've establish one hell of a terrible reputation for interviews and my experience confirmed this.
