    YES!!!!! any tips will help. its going to be an hour interview.
    Hour interview, that's always fun. The tips I'm giving is assuming this is a decent size company.

    Did they mention how many people will be interviewing you? That's always good to know. I'm used to typically two people.

    If it's an HR person than don't expect a technical interview. It also won't be a great interview either. HR people are the worse interviewers from experience.

    Here's the main tips.

    Be early, not too early, about 5-10 minutes. If you're too early you'll start to feel awkward and probably increase your nervousness.

    Ensure you dress appropriately for the position you're applying for but dress smartly regardless.

    Know the company you're applying for. Learn about their values. Their style of working, etc. Use their website as a means of finding out about them.

    Use LinkedIn to find out about the people interviewing you if they're on there.

    Have questions prepared to ask them, about work environment, etc. Don't ask about pay, unless they bring it up. Very important.

    Have prepared answers ready but don't blurt things out. Listen to the questions carefully. Take a breath, than answer if you can. There's no need to rush. Speak slowly and calmly.

    Realise that the person interviewing you is probably not a fan of interviews either so as they evaluate you, you evaluate them.

    I agree with not lying, that's never a good idea. More importantly, don't provide negative answers to questions. Even the question, "what is your weakness" should be turned into a positive. It should also be a answer suitable for the position you're applying for.

    It's only natural to be nervous. I've done a lot of interviews and I still get a touch nervous doing them.

    My final bit of advice is this. It's your first interview for your first full time job. You're going to put a lot of emphasis on how important this is for you and wanting to get this job. That will stress you out more than the actual interview. Just realise that this is one step of many.

    Get some good sleep, prepare your things the night before, get there early, learn from the experience regardless what the outcome is.

    So far no issues with brightness.
    Edge is fine, no problems. I do not play games so I cannot help you there.
    Glance is working just fine.
    Equalizer is working in theory but I can't tell if the actual settings are working, I have a crappy pair of generic Sansa headphones from 9 years ago.
    I am not sure about Motion Data, haven't tried that out yet.
    I don't use Groove as much, mostly Spotify and AudioCloud.
    There are some heating issues, not too bad though.
    Charging is not a problem, I use the Nokia charger that came with the device.

    Hope this helps. I am outta here.
    I guess I'll have to hard reset it, hopefully that'll help.

    Okay to gag order has been lifted. The company is going to shut down manufacturing operations where I work and move production to Ireland and Puerto Rico. In other words, in 18 odd months, I will most likely be out of a job.
    Tough break - very sorry to hear that. Still, your game is good enough where you'll bounce back...and take advantage of the next best opportunity for you soon.

    Good morning! Just curious, are they leaving on their own accord, or are they being forced out to save the company some money?

    In the 9 years I've been here, about 90% of the staff has turned over. Because I work in a medical facility, attrition is expected. But because I work in a youth friendly medical facility, stability is important for the patients. Obviously, management doesn't value this as much as they should.

    We have a ton of people here who've been here under 2 years. We have very few people over 5 years,and and even smaller group in the 2-5 year range. People are leaving because of management in most cases...the work is grinding itself with the youth and the place is in transition.

    Just one more day of school. Only situation with Latin is left to be seen. Should be a final A, but I'm not going to jump to a connclusion. My average is 4.6 at the momen, if everything goes as planned with Latin, it will be 4.7, more than good.

    I'm not really here today as my job has decided to send me to a conference last minute to cover for my supervisor in their usual disjointed, disorganized manner. Got to sort that stuff out now.

    I have a feeling Mexico will win but by one goal . Jamaica could of tied that game against Venezuela Had they not been down one player. I think Jamaica has the advantage here because they are coming here all pumped up and bouncing back from a loss. If Mexico isn't careful they will lose.
