Interview Details – Initial short phone interview with HR from Pennsylvania. Interview was supposed to be 2 groups of 2 employees, 45 minutes each. Unfortunately 2 didn't show up. 1 that was in the interview seemed very uninterested, 1 question, 1 comment, rested head on hand most of the time. Structure was: learn about company history/background, speak about myself, see what skills match. Very straight forward process, no behavioral questions or anything like that, stuck mostly to what's on my resume.

Advice: come prepared for a marathon. The interview questions weren't that hard, but having the stamina to withstand this amount of interviewing is difficult. After wasting 5 hours (total) of my life on interviewing for this position and sending a thank you note, I got no followup. That rudeness wrecked the otherwise positive impression i got when I was there.
Interview Question – the interview went on for hours -- I don't actually remember any questions. But nothing stood out as particularly difficult or challenging. Answer Question
