    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at California Academy of Sciences.

    I was a part time guard and the position opened up so I applied for it. The interview was simple and quick because they knew me already. They asked me some questions about my experience and theoretical situations. Since I was a guard and already had experience with the position it was easygoing.
