    Interview Details

    It was a long process including a trip to Boston. I will say everyone was really nice that interviewed us. The only issue is that they didn't give everyone real feedback. Every single person who walked out of the interview was made to feel like they got the job. And most of us didn't. I guess just honesty would be my only request.
