    Interview

    I was interviewed by two BR employees in a group interview with one other candidate. Interviews make me extremely nervous, and even though I didn't get the job, I found my interviewers to be very friendly and likable which helped put me at ease. They seemed to be looking for a high-energy and extroverted candidate.
