    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Macalester College in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I give them credit for being quick and polite about the whole interview process. I received an email for a phone screening, and then 4 business days later an email to come in for an interview in just a couple of days after that, and then 5 days later got an email that I didn't get the job. Interview questions were pretty standard. Conversations each time lasted 30-45 minutes.
