What impressed you positively?

"The students who showed us the ropes were awesome. Seriousely some of the nicest people my wife and I have ever met." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

What are your general comments?

"Good, low stress interview. Some of the questions seemed canned (like--"if you like to work with people, why not be a social worker?). Overall it was a good experience. I was a little scared when I first showed up (as were the other interviewees), but as the day went on, the place started to grow on me (and I think the others as well)." Report Response
