    Interview Details

    I applied online, and had a phone interview in about a week. The questions weren't tough, just generic: What is the quality you look most for in a company, what are you most proud of that you did in the past year and why, etc, etc.

    I did not receive the position, but I suspect it was because I did not follow up after the interview.
