    Interview

    First spoke with HR about coming in for an interview, and when. The manager and coordinator were fair. Upon interview day, I met with one of them first for about 30 minutes, and then met with the other for 30 minutes as well. It was very straight to the point, and asked questions about my experience as well as described their team and what they did.
