What are your general comments?

"My interview experience pretty much sucked. It was the hardest one I've had so far. I went into the interview completely relaxed b/c i figured it was going to be pretty easy, but that was not the case. My interviewer had zero sense of humor. He had a list of 18 questions and he just went right on down the list. It wasn't conversational at all even though I was attempting to make it that way. He was getting down to business. They were all really random questions. He seemed to try to criticize my background, like where I went to school and the sports I played. He didn't crack a smile the entire time and was impossible to read. I just didn't have good luck b/c everyone else i talked to had a really slack interview. You pretty much have a 1 and 40 chance of having a crappy interviewer. Decent odds. " Report Response
