|Your Opinion on the approach of the interviewers and their key focus||Interviewers were casual and conversational, and did not treat the interview as a formal affair. They were clear about what they wanted to ask. However, my panel was running late, so my interview took place almost 2 hours after the scheduled slot. So, I got an impression that they were trying to rush through. My interview was the first interview after lunch|
