    First ,I was sent an assessment. If you pass the assessment then you got a phone interview. The third process with me interviewing in person. I received a job offer that same day.

The recruiter apologized and asked was I open two other positions that started at a later date.It left a bad taste in my mouth with the inconsistency and unprofessionalism of such a major corporation!
