Interview waiting room experience:
We reached the interview room exactly @ 9:45 am. The interview room is so huge. I saw a sign which says the room can occupy 199 people. As soon as, we entered the room, we sat close to a door (Door 1) which leads to the interview cubicles. This door was located close to the rest room. We thought this was the only door through which all people can enter and exit the. Within 5 minutes, we found that they had another door (Door 2) which was around 25 feet from this door. Interview officers was calling people-s name from 2 doors almost every 5-10 minutes. We were able to hear the names very clearly if the officer calls from Door 1. If an office calls from Door 2, were not able to hear. So, we ended up looking backwards to the door 2 every 1-2 minutes. Again, the room was around 75% occupied and we could find another spot in the middle of the interview room. If you get an opportunity, please sit in the middle of the interview room. By this way, you can hear your name is called either from Door 1 or Door 2. We could use cell phone inside the room. Due to the number of people sitting in the room, the interview room was loud. People were talking most of the times. So, pay attention to the officers who is calling people-s name for interview. We though, our names will be called by 10:30 AM. Sitting in the interview room felt like we were waiting for days. We checked our watch almost every minute. Time kept ticking and it was 11:15 AM. By this time, all people who came with us and after us was called in for the interview. Finally, around 11:30 AM, a female officer from door 2 called my first name and we immediately approached door 2. Don-t panic if people came after you were called-in for the interview before you. I don-t know what the priority order is.
Officer greeted both of us and we greeted her back. She apologized for the long wait and she mentioned that they had lots of appointments today a
