    Interview Details

    It was not very rigorous. I got the job because a friend passed my resume along. It was very informal. My boss is very relaxed. I am now only adding to this because it is making me write 30 words or more.

    Interview Details

    Pleasant interview that lasted about 30 minutes. Questions related mostly to the job duties of the position. I had the right experience and background, so the questions were easily answered correctly. Then came the tougher questions not related to the job. I believe I gave good responses to those questions.
