    Cons

    Too regional and not enough collaboration with those in offices outside home region. No real training when starting the job. Knowledge is tribal so make sure you find the right person(s).

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember exactly how it went, but he gave me a scenario and explain all the sum of monetary figures. It was a very broad question that involved specific numbers while reading the newspaper. I have many years of interviewing potential job candidates, and I don't think that it was a well-designed question at all. The interviewer began the call how tired he was as a result of being in a series of meetings between his travels.   Answer Question
