    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at McCarthy Building (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2019.

    Interview

    The company flew me out to their South West headquarter region. The first night consisted of causal dining/drinking/conversation with McCarthy employees. Day two consisted of several interviews with employees in the office. It was more of a serious panel interview and was a great learning process.
