    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at SGS (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First round of interview was with HR and went pretty smooth, next was face to face interview with manager. They looked very impressed and said will get back to me about the hiring decision. 4 weeks and NO reply from their end at all. Finally I had to contact them back and heard that they choose other candidate. Highly unprofessional when it came to communication.
