An interview that goes over its time limit may be an indication that your interviewer was especially interested in what you had to say.

If the interview has shifted from questions to a more vivid description of the position, it may be a sign of a good job interview. 

3. You met with more people than expected

If you go in and end up meeting everyone they mentioned when they asked you to go, that likely means they were interested in seeing how you would fit in with everyone else on the team If they introduce you to people you didn’t originally discuss it could mean they were especially impressed by you.
