What impressed you negatively?

" It was a bit disorganized though I understand it was the first day of interview season. My first interviewer, an M2, didnt show up because she didnt know she had me at the time. Had to wait around over 1.5 hrs while everyone else went through 2 interviews b4 I had mine, my 2nd interviewer left so I had a replacement interviewer and then i had to stay late to make up my missed 1st interview."

What are your general comments?

"I could only laugh about missing my first interview, it didnt really stress me out but it was kind of annoying waiting around while people finished all of their interviews b4 I even started. Overall, the actual interviews went well and I was talking with all of them until time ran over. Surprisingly, my M2 interview was the hardest, though it could have been that I was so tired ( I got there at 11 and my last interview wasnt until 5pm). SDN was dead on, all my questions were questions I had seen on SDN." Report Response
