Interview Details – Parking's pretty terrible - even for employees. Interviewed with about 3 employees together. Took about 30 minutes, then went to the office/cubicle area to write a short "talking points" memo. Said they would contact me within a week or two, but never heard back. They were insistent about calling me to schedule an interview, so it was certainly lovely of them to just decide not to call back. I suppose it says something about they way they work. The office setting was a bit depressing - like most government type job settings.
