What are your general comments?

"I had heard from everyone that the interviews were really "chill," but I was still a little tense. They let you interact with the other interviewees pretty extensively, which takes the edge off considerably because everyone is so friendly and open and talkative. I wouldn't even call the interviews "interviews." It was like we started a conversation as we were walking toward the interview room, and we never stopped chatting, and before you know it, 30 minutes are up. Overall, it was just a very relaxed and friendly environment...I had a blast. AND they feed you chocolate eclairs for breakfast...what more can you ask for? Just be careful not to get food on your suit. " Report Response
