    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at James Madison University in January 2011.

    Interview

    A Friend told me about the position and helped me get the interview. It was easy enough to get in contact with them and to work in the interview around my class schedule. The interviewers were extremely laid back, and finished off the interview asking for a joke.
