    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Pittsburgh in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online when job was posted. Got a callback for a Skype interview a day later. Had the Skype interview then a week later had what was suppose to be a 30 min in person interview with 3 reps. The first two reps were very professional, but rushed through the interview. (Only lasted 15 mins) The third rep I was suppose to interview with ended up being unavailable to interview. I was suppose to hear back from them it’s been 2 weeks and nothing. Very rude and unprofessional
