    I have been with the company through a number of regimes and, for the first time in a while, I feel that we are headed in the right direction. I also get to work with some incredibly dedicated and smart people.


    The watches are too expensive for me to buy.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Tourneau.


    After applying I was contacted somewhat quickly. Had a phone interview as a prescreening. When I was brought in I met with the entire team, which was nice to not have to come back multiple times, as I was already employed.
