    Interview

    I was recruited through a headhunter. They made the initial contact then I was given an onsite interview. I think I was givem one more phone interview. The process was fairly quick.

    Three managers, all from different areas will go over your resume and what you are all about. If you can make it through this process usually they will tell you whether or not you have the job on the spot. Usually if you get the interview you get the job unless you really screw it up.
