    Interview took approximately 3 hours. All 1-1 interviews. Interviewed with my regional manager, regional risk officer, and sales manager. Additional phone call required multi state divisional director. There didn't seem to be very scripted questions. Mostly wanted to see if there was a personality fit. No aptitude test, but a lot of questions about pervious skills and what qualities I would bring to the role.

    I applied early March, after several phone screening, I had 3 hour long interview within 1 week. Compliance did take about 3 weeks to clear before I had a start date.
