    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Columbia Sportswear (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    I received a phone call from HR she asked me some basic questions about my resume and my work experience and why this company. I was told she would send her notes to the dept manager who will set up interviews. Since she was out of town my second interview was by phone. She told me I would hear back in a week or so for an in person interview. I was given about 5 days notice of the in person interview with 3 people. I received a call from HR the next day with a job offer.
