    Interview

    Standard interview process. Started with phone screening with behavioral questions and situational reactions. Took about an hour to complete. I was then contacted within a week and was brought in the week after for a face to face interview. Met with 4 senior managers, who asked standard interview questions and how I'd react in certain situations.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at American Public University System in August 2010.

    Interview

    I was sent a few question that I had to write a response for and email back. I was then contacted for a phone interview, with pretty standard interview questions. I then had an in-person interview, where I had additional basic interview questions and detail questions based on my phone interview. They then gave me basic office software to assess my knowledge (word, excel, ect).

    Everyone was very down-to-earth and friendly. They were having a birthday party for another department while I was there and I could hear them socializing. It seemed like everyone was getting along well.
