"I didn't have problems finding parking since I came in the morning. My interviewer was conversational and easy to talk to.

As an incentive, she gave me a meal ticket for lunch. I did get the lunch but I ended up not going on the tour anyways. I couldn't wait to get out of that place. " Report Response
