    Interviewers were extremely welcoming. Asked a lot of questions about past experiences. Was interviewed by three employees who all had a different sets of questions and held different positions within the company. The whole interview lasted between 2.5-3 hours. You are given a Microsoft Office efficiency test, a typing WPM test, and a personality quiz before hand. All around, interview is a little long but in a very welcoming and positive environment.
