What are your general comments?

"I would have to say that the interviews at KCOM were a bit different than any others I have experienced. It was very conversational, but almost to the point where it threw me off a bit. All interviews usually begin with small talk, but at KCOM it seemed that it never developed into something more serious in nature. This would have been totally fine if I had been expecting it, but it felt as if I kept waiting for the interview to begin. So my advice is to just relax, roll with it, and have a good time. There is really not much need for a serious interview, as most of that stuff is covered in the application." Report Response
