    Average Interview


    I went to the base and had an interview with two people - one would be my supervisor. They asked me several (non-technical) questions. They asked about my team work experiences and some of my classes that I've taken. What were some I like and didn't. It was a very easy interview however I didn't think I did well, but it was a learning experience. I still got the internship though!
