    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Carat (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Brief, casual for the first interview, met in person and went over the job requirements, made it to the second interview, but they were quite unprofessional after saying they were going to follow up and look forward to you meeting the next person and then never returned any phone calls or emails regarding when this was going to happen.
