Very relaxed, if you can navigate through MS Word and Excel you wont be going too badly. Questions arent leading, or sly, and they look for honesty.

    I was interviewed by two ladies who were polite. Unfortunately I forgot to ask how long would it take for them to get back to me. It turns out big mistake on my part, as they never ever bothered to got back to me at all. I tried to contact them and see why not all I got is an answer to wait for another two weeks. It has been now eight weeks still never heard from them ever. Very unprofessional and very disappointing. Should respect people more.
