Safety and balance come first

I had 3 rounds of interviews: first one on the phone (screening), second one at their office with 2 managers, and third one as a conference call with 2 other employees. Questions were behavioural and situational. The interview was fairly easy and aligned to the experience required for the job. The only aspect that I didn't like much is that during the in-person interview the managers did not take ANY notes! I wonder if the decisions are just based on intuition (which leads to all sorts of biases....)
