    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Author Solutions (Bloomington, IN).

    Interview

    Went to initial interview which consisted of an hour long informative session all about the company, then broke off with another potential candidate to do a little more hyping up of the work environment, benefits, etc. Went back for another one on one interview on a different day. They knew I had little experience, but kept telling me that it didn't matter. It most likely did as I did not receive a job offer.
