    Interview

    After closing of the posted position, the initial communication to schedule an interview was quick and professional. The interview timeframe was scheduled by email. The interview was surprisingly easy for the level of work requested, half technical, half situational, so offer as much dialog as possible. It took at least 4 weeks to hear back on the job offered. Orientation is only twice a month, so request that you get the earliest orientation possible, otherwise you could wait another 2 weeks to start the position.
