After the interviews I was asked by Human Resources if I could take a Strength Finder /Personality Test
Once the Strength Finder was completed I was instructed that I had concluded my interview process and I would hear something shortly.

Very Long Interview ProcessInterview Questions
Negotiation DetailsI was given an offer and I went back one time to negotiate salary and was happy with the outcome. I did have challenges negotiating PTO/Vacation as I was coming from a company where I had 4 weeks and was going to JQH earning PTO as I went. Also 401K takes 1 full year of service prior to being eligible for participation. Still do not love the PTO but your earn time quickly and rapidly as you tenure with the company.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
