    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at PRA (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    Unorganized, there were too many chains of people conducting tasks, was asked to fill out a background check release form before interviewing, most people seemed they felt a sense of entitlement from where they've been and now they're "king of the castle", dropped the "F" bomb amongst other words.

    Average Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PRA (Raleigh, NC) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by 2 face to face interviews. The phone interview was conducted by the recruiter, 1:1 interview was at headquarters. The 1:1 interviews were not intimidating and mostly included questions to be expected in any interview. Being confident, personable and prepared are key to the interview process.
