    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at MeadWestvaco (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was interviewed at the SWE Conference, I was selected for an onsite interview in one of the conference interview booths. They called me when they had an opening and met them back there. They understood because of the setting I had little prep time and little knowledge of the company. The interviews were given out in 30 minute slots so it was a very quick and short interview given by a recruiter who had been giving interviews all day.
