    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Submitted resume and application on-line. There was a phone interview about the position and then they invited me to meet with management of the project. They asked traditional questions. Afterwards, we talked again by phone and met one more time to negotiate the salary. There was a drug test and then I began working at the project.
