    Interview

    Applied via website. Was asked to come in to an interview. 3 staff members interviewed me over about 30 mins. Felt great about the interview. Odd questions about personality mostly. It's been 2 weeks and no call back yet. Hopefully I will receive a call at least telling me I am no longer considered. Being left in the dark is no fun..
