What are your general comments?

"For the Chicago office it's at 225 W. Washington in the DeVry Building. I arrived at Washington/Wells via the Brown Line ''EL” at 9:40am for a 10am appointment. I checked in on the West side door and walked to the East side entrance to let them know I was here. I waited for 10 minutes until my interviewer came down to get me. My questions where straightforward. I have a lot of experience so I did not want to ramble too much. I did here the phone ring in the middle of a question/answer; I presume it was another interviewee arriving, and the front desk paging my interviewer, so just ignore it. Also, when your interviewer jots down notes, I presume its not verbatim what I was saying, but that e.g. I was clearly answering question #2 without hesitation, with confidence and that I had thought about what my process entailed. Again, this is what I presume or would do if the roles where reversed. I was slightly nervous the night before, but was well relaxed after I first sat down in the office. If you need to extrapolate in an area, he/she will guide you for more detail. My advice: relax and believe in all your accomplishments." Report Response
