    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Monterey Bay Aquarium (Monterey, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    My now-boss and supervisor were extremely friendly and amiable and made me feel comfortable and encouraged. Of course it did help that they asked all the questions that I was expecting and had prepared for. At the end, one of them remarked in a genuine tone that it was a great interview, and the other literally told me I'm awesome. Even if I hadn't later been offered the position, I still would give this interview a double thumbs up.
