    Simple interview, I felt real good about it. They asked me all the questions they had on the paper and wrote everything i said down. They were very nice but i try not to look at that because nice doesn't mean you have the job. As of now, I'm waiting on a response and its almost been a week. I'll update if something changes and/or if i get the job
