Interview Details – I applied online and spoke with a recruiter at my colleges job fair. I was presented with an interview opportunity within the following three weeks.

Interview Details – After a screening phone interview with HR, I had a Skype interview with one a manager. Both he and I agreed I was not a good fit for his department and we were both confused that the interview had even been set up.
