    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Boy Scouts of America (Santa Ana, CA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Very professional, company was focused on a certain professional designation which was only listed as desired in the job description but when it came down to it, was required. Seems like a great opportunity and a great culture. Would have loved to have had the the chance to go further in the interview process.

    Interview

    I did not interview for the job because I knew someone that was in charge of hiring so I was offered a job before I even knew I wanted to apply for it. Unfortunately I was at the right place at the right time amongst the right people.
