You will end up talking to several people each of whom will take up at
least half an hour of the allocated time. So, you can expect to talk to six
or more people. You might even get one of those writing test sprung on you.

I had an interview recently where I talked to one person for three hours.
He apologized for taking so long. But I didn't get the job. I'm thinking he
should have cut the interview short if he wasn't going to hire me.
