    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Underwriters Laboratories (Northbrook, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email for a phone interview about a week and a half later. The phone interview consisted of me talking about my resume and past experience/projects. Two days later I received another email for an in-person interview, which mostly consisted of personality questions. The whole process took about two and half weeks and was a very positive experience.
