    Very low key interview process. I submitted an application and got a call the next day. The interview consisted of 4 different managers (2 ARLC's of the dorm and 2 desk managers). The interview lasted a total of 20 minutes, and I felt like they did a good job of getting to know the candidates during the process

    it was a fixed hourly paid position. They interestingly denied me for the role claiming as being not right fit for video auditing job. However, they created a new position for me "Systems Intern" that actually was better fit given my programming experience.
