    Average Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at American Science and Engineering (Billerica, MA) in March 2015.


    it was through a recruiter, and then I went to the interview. it was nearly 3 hrs. I liked the people I interviewed with, HR was great.

The hiring manager had said she wanted me to come back but after 3 weeks and little communication or feedback from the recruiting agency, I accepted the other offer.
