Great team! Very very smart people, easy to get along with. Learn a lot, make you feel important from day one. Treat you like a professional.
Not a ton of room to talk with everyone. Location is decent at best. Extremely conservative company, would benefit those who have the ability to put the pedal to the medal for long periods of time.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Bard (Tempe, AZ) in June 2015.
I had a phone interview with one of the HR Specialists. I was disappointed that she didn't seem too well informed about the job. In addition, she kept using 'um' which is totally unprofessional. I told her I didn't have a bachelor's degree which was clearly stated on my resume. I stated that I only had my associate's degree, but over 10 years of experience in the field. She stated that wouldn't be an issue, but she needed to check with her HR contact. This is something she should have done before she interviewed me. She contacted me a few days later to set up a call with the hiring manager. I interviewed with her for 30 minutes and everything went great. The HR Specialist sent me an email a few days later requesting an in person interview. Then, two days later she emailed me to let me know that I definitely needed a bachelor's degree. Oh and she apologized for wasting my time. This is definitely not a company that I want to ever deal with again. The communication during the entire process was unacceptable to say the least.
