In Frame Relay,depending on the allocation of BW(permanent / temporary),the Virtual circuits are categorized into PermanantVCs and SwitchedVCs. In either case, there is something called CIR(Commited Information Rate), where the frame that belongs to particular VC is Discard Elegible(DE set to1) incase of congestion if the info rate of that particular VC at any time exceeds CIR.This is how flow control is done in Frame Relay as far as my knowledge is concerned.

So far my interviews haven't been that technical. They only want to know generally if you can or can't do something or have expirence with a certain technology. So you'll usually get tag teamed with a HR person(know nothing about Networking) and a manger (thinks they know about networking) hehe that has generally been my expirence. This of course depends alot, but I've never had to go even close to as much detail as subha517 has.
