What are your general comments?

"It was horrible. I have interviewed at six places and this was the least laid back overall. They say it's pretty laid back, but it was a pretty bad experience overall. The interviwer did not make any attempts at all to make me feel comfortable. I even made a joke somewhere during the interview and he did not get it even though it was really obvious, I actually had to say that it was a joke! Horrible experience overall, might have been a result of Olin's thin walls not letting me get enough sleep. I don't know." Report Response
