    Interview

    The interview process felt unnecessarily tedious. I understand having a multiple-person vetting process, but having more than 5 hour-long interviews back-to-back was extremely exhausting. In some cases, the people who were chosen to interview me seemed like they had no interview training, as they were struggling to be proactive with asking questions, which lead me to lead the interview just so that it wouldn't be an hour of awkward silence. There were no communications between interviewers since it was such a tight crunch between interviews, which resulted in me having to answer the same questions repeatedly. Overall, it just seemed extremely disorganized and inefficient as I ended up having to take time off work for it.
