    Interview

    The interview process was very professional, and mostly over the phone.
    I have an initial interview with the HR department which gathered some very basic skill level information -- followed up a few weeks later by an interview with the Director of the team for which I was applying.
    The Director was very direct and up front with the questions being asked and allowed to an opportunity to ask any questions I had of him about the position and company as a whole.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at West Corporation (Omaha, NE) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter via email to set up an initial onsite interview with her. All communication and correspondence was clear, precise and quick. There was a bad storm coming on the day of the interview and the recruiter reached out to me two days before to reschedule so I didn’t have to drive in the snow storm. I met with her and she made it very comfortable. The questions were about my resume and background. I asked a few questions and the recruiter answered them all thoroughly. She set up the 2nd interview during that time with the hiring manager. She sent me a confirmation email with whom I’d be interviewing with, times, where to meet and other information. She also included more in-depth answers to the questions I asked during the interview which I thought was very cool! I met with the hiring manager who provided an awesome description of the job, the company and where it is going. She asked about my background and how I react to certain environments and situations. She made it clear it's not just about them, they wanted to ensure West is a good fit for me as well. About a week went by and I reached out the recruiter again to check on the status. I was promptly replied to; being told where they were at in the process and when I should hear back. I received a follow up email on the date she said I would hear back to set up a 3rd interview with the Hiring Manager and another teammate. The third interview, much like the first two were very professional and comfortable. They dove deeper into the job, where they are in the process relative to the department and if I was still interested. I eventually received a call from the recruiter with an offer and accepted, pending a background check. After hearing about the job details during the interview process, I was anxious to get started and I was able to start, if I remember correctly, within 7 days. Overall, the interview process was awesome. All people involved made it very comfortable with great information along the way. The communication was great and all information was correct. I would say this is one of the best hiring process I’ve been a part of, coming from a Fortune 500 company and working in State of Federal Government.
