What are your general comments?

"I was very disappointed with my visit. Beyond what was already mentioned, the interview day was not set-up well at all. After every part of the day, the other applicants and I were left alone just waiting for someone to come get us. Instead of organizing the day in such a manner that it would be a good use of both their time and ours, instead I spent half the day sitting awkwardly in one lobby or another. On a positive note, they did treat us to an excellent lunch." Report Response
