    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at National Federation of Independent Business in May 2016.

    Interview

    Went through a 30 minute phone interview with recruiter and was called back for a face to face interview a week later.

    Interviewers were nice enough, I didn't get much of a chance to put a word in edgewise as they both hammered home the fact that a lot of hours were required to be truly "sucessful" at the job.
