    Originally met recruit from company via a school sponsored career fair, and was later contacted via phone call and scheduled an interview soon after. The interview was conducted by two people, both engineers. They explained the basis of the company and described their daily routines, however the specific position that was up for taking was not explained as well. During the interview, both interviewers asked a series of basic situational and decision questions, nothing technical, but it the questioning process was somewhat long.
