A very relaxed environment.

I'm assuming you passed the real test when the agent saw your skin colour.

The real purpose of interviews is to allow the agent (guided by their superiors) to filter applicants without the embarrasing paper trail of an SQL statement checking for 'al-' at the start up a surname.

Living in LA I was regularly stopped on the highway at immigration checks for paperwork - but by simply glancing through the window they were able to wave my white British face on without needing to see my H1-B - I assume they have some form of x-ray vision
