    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at A-LIGN (Tampa, FL) in November 2018.


    The initial interview was over the phone discussing the day to day procedures of the job and information about myself with a Senior Campus Recruiter. The second interview included more in-depth questions from the Manager of Quality Staff and Training. The third interview was with two staff members, Manager of Quality Staff and Training and Director of Cyber Risk and Privacy. The two team members discussed the activities involved in the job and more background about myself.

    Overall, thee interview process was extremely organized and very comfortable!
