What impressed you negatively?

"The interview itself. One person was somewhat responsive, the other just looked up to ask questions. The have a form that they follow, so they would look up to ask the question and as soon as I would start talking they would start writing... My entire interview was maybe 15 minutes - and when we were heading back I mentioned to my interviewer that I was surprised it was so short and they responded with "well we have a lot of people to see today and we are running behind." I thought that was very rude - I flew across the country and spent hundreds of dollars for them to give me ten minutes.... " Report Response
