What are your general comments?

"I had a great interviewer who put emphasis on the conversation more so than interrogating me, which I was worried about beforehand due to horror stories I had heard. It was a "getting to know you" exercise and it seemed to go well, with few awkward moments. One thing I appreciated was at the end of the interview he made me stop and take the time to think, for a full minute, of anything I had forgotten to add to the interview...he didn't want me to leave the office and regret not having said something. Also, the questions flowed nicely between one another, and while there were some difficult ones he never seemd condesending if I didn't have a snappy answer. Rather we would discuss and debate the issue between us." Report Response
