    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at R.J. O'Brien (Chicago, IL) in March 2009.

    Interview

    HR Department was reasonably responsive when queried. Long period between interview and notification that an offer would not be extended. Phone interview was with actual hiring manager, not with HR, so it was easier to get immediate feedback about expected knowledge, etc. In-person interview was long, with 3 separate 1:1 interviews from hiring manager up to C-level. Refreshments were offered.
