    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    The process was quick and painless. Not your typical corporate long drawn out process. They were direct and to the point. One phone interview then two weeks until one in person interview then waited one week for a call for the offer, then I asked for 24 hours to accept. They were up front and let me know there was one other person they needed to interview.

I hate that question...)   1 Answer
