I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Brown Brothers Harriman in March 2013.

The wanted someone who likes to figure things out on there own with little or no help...I just graduated from college with no experience so didn't seem like the right fit for me.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Seemed like they only wanted a temp, not someone to hire on full time. Other opportunities.
