    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at WMS Gaming (Chicago, IL) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I applied via the company website and was contacted by telephone by the recruiter. The interview was scheduled for two days later. The phone interview only lasted about 10 minutes, with the recruiter taking up most of that time detailing the position. She only asked a few questions, seemed rushed, and ended the interview. I felt I had many more questions that went unanswered. Ultimately, I did not receive another call about the position.
