    After applying online they contacted me to schedule a phone interview. We went through my resume and they asked some questions which were mostly behavioral and pretty simple. They asked me if I was familiar with CAD and the department I was interested in working. A couple of weeks after that they submitted an offer through email.

    You have to tell them that they need to hire you at the top of the salary range because they won't do it, otherwise. If you're asian or part of the lgbt community, you'll likely get paid and treated better.
