    Interview

    Friendly. Had two interviews in one day but Interviewers were running behind. Read mainly from a generated interview questionnaire based on application and seemed robotic. Both were friendly and to the point. There was a moment with the second interview where it became more personal talking about our children and hobbies etc.
