    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at San Antonio in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The application process involves a long online application and adding a resume is a must.
    The phone call I finally received after 2 weeks of waiting seemed last minute and I had only 1 of 2 slots offered for an interview on the very last day of interviews.
    Upon arrival at the inerview, I was made to wait 10 minutes while the interview team slowly got themselves back to the inerview room from lunch.
    I found myself dressed more professionally than some members of the interview team.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was not really any particular question, but the fact that of the 10 questions asked 5-6 of them were multi-part questions and you had to ask the interview team to repeat themselves, hoping you would not lose track of what you were talking about at the time.   Answer Question
