Sometimes others could be pretty busy with their own work and as an intern I could feel bothersome asking others for help. I could see that being a problem for new hires as well.
If you do your job and don't get involved in the gossip it's a great place to work with great people just like any work place.
Why do you think you are qualified for this position?
How do you prioritize?
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
