What are your general comments?

"While I heard it was meant to be low stress, it was actually worse than I expected. I interviewed in an examination room in the hospital and was uncomfortable throughout the whole process. When I mentioned a stats class I took five years ago, the interviewer drew a graph and asked me to explain the significance of some of the points... that was unexpected. In general, while it was conversational, it didn't appear that the interviewer cared much about getting to know me. He would routinely ask questions and then not let me answer fully. It was kind of disappointing." Report Response
