3rd visa renewal /location and by far the best. The entire process was a breeze.

Appointment took a total of 50 minutes from walking in to walking out, 46 minutes were spent in a line. Only questions asked were what job am I going to be doing and what company is it? Then a few jokes and I went on my way. Text 2 days later to pick up passport from depot.

Experience was pretty good. Short line. Security much more reasonable and friendly than other locations I've done it at (Sydney, London). One note for people doing this - you cannot pick-up your passport post-appointment from the consulate. You can have it delivered to your hotel, AirBnB, etc. OR you can pay $16 to have it delivered to the Mail Boxes Etc. office in the 15th Arrondissement (this is the fastest option).

Very easy process. Interview was 5min if that and only my LCA was looked at with general chit chat about USA filling the time. Visa was issued day after interview and then pick up was day after that.

Very efficient process. Picking up passport at the store was much easier than getting it delivered. Appointment Tuesday morning, passport was ready by midday on Friday.

Went to get a new E3 and E3D, had our baby in tow which turned out to be brilliant because we got escorted to the front of every single queue from the second we even approached the security line outside. We were done and out within 20 mins! Appointment was on a Thursday, picked up our passports with new visas from the post shop on Monday. So speedy. If you can, take a baby with you! 😆
