    Several hours after submitting an online resume, I was contacted by HR to setup a skype, in-person, or phone interview (my choice). I choose to meet in person. The entire interview was a conversation and I was not questioned very much. If anything, they were interested in getting to know my personality.

    Very long, not much communication between interviews, but ultimately successful. The hardest part was the first interviews and their required presentation. Most of the interview seemed more geared at figuring out if I was a decent cultural fit and wasn't clinically retarded.
