    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fender Musical Instruments.

    Interview

    Applied a month prior to receiving an email asking me to attend an interview at their headquarters. I was given a tour of the new and very cool building, and after that two people (recruiter and hiring manager) interviewed me and asked me many standard interview questions. It seemed like one of the longest interviews I've ever had, and though none of the questions were that difficult, the number of them really started to make my head spin and my mouth dry. After that, I was led to the HR manager for ANOTHER interview, which was shorter, but she asked vastly more difficult questions which I stumbled on, and ultimately I believe this second, tired interview, led to me not getting the position.
