    Recruiter interview by phone. Introduction brief and friendly. Brief explanation of the position. Questions that were respectful, non-leading and appropriate to the position. Probes appropriate. Cues and follow up questions appropriate. Provided me an opportunity to ask questions. Answered my questions with candor. Explained the next steps and what to expect.
