What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There are four potential interview time slots and only two interviews. This means you may be sitting around all morning, so if you're the kind of person who can work yourself up into a nervous state, bring a distractor. Also, they do not serve you breakfast, so either eat ahead of time or hope you have an open slot in the morning." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a very low pressure interview. The questions were what I expected (with the exception of the God question....but it was asked more because of my background). The tour has you walking a lot, so definitely comfortable shoes. They feed you lunch, but not breakfast, so eat beforehand. " Report Response
