Hi All,

I asked folks to share any recent visa interview experience and no one responded so here's my share of experience :) 

I had my visa interview on the first of June. Here's how it went

VO: Good Morning! How are you?

Me: Am good. Thank you. How are you today?
VO: Am good. (Takes the passport)
VO: Who's the petitioning company?
Me: XXX
VO: Is it product based or serviced based?
Me: Serviced based.
VO: Ok. So you will be working for a client?
Me: Yes, my client is YYY in LOCATION
VO: Ok. So you will be working at the client location?
Me: Yes.
VO: How long have you been with this company?
Me: Since November 2015.
VO: Ok. So its fairly new then.
Me: Yes, but the client is old as I have been working on my OPT as well
VO: OK. Have you ever been out of status as a student?
Me: No
VO: Ok. The visa process is complete, however there is a bit of administrative task pending from my end.
Me: Ok. Do I have to do something from my end?
VO: No, I will take care of it.
Me: Ok. Thank you sir!
VO: Thank you, Have a nice day.
 
My visa status showed it's in the administrative processing since 01 - June - 2017 till 13 - June - 2017 and got approved. 
Am not sure what caused the delay, but a little research and asking around made me understand that if  no slip is given and the VO says a bit of processing, it's mostly that the consulate doesn't have the documents from USICS to verify and have to do it in background.
 
POE was Newark and here's how it went
 
Me: Good Morning Officer!
POE Officer: Good Morning!
POE Officer: So you went to AAA university?
Me: Yes
POE Officer: What did you study there?
Me: Masters in Information Technology
POE Officer: Sounds good. What are you doing now?
Me: Am working as a Solution Architect
POE Officer: Sounds great. Which Company?
Me: XXX
POE Officer: What do they do?
Me: They're a serviced based company
POE Officer: Oh ok. 
Me: Yeah, so I have been contracted out to CCC company at LOCATION
POE Officer: Alright. Looks great. You're good to go (*Stamps*)
Me: Thank you sir. Have a nice day.
