    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McKinstry in September 2014.


    The process started with a phone interview with an HR person, a means to filter through unqualified candidates. Once the first was over an in-person interview was set up followed by another brief verification follow up phone call. The process was overall informal but through, good people and encouraging environment.
