    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ALEX - Alternative Experts (Dumfries, VA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted application on indeed.com and took about 2-3 weeks for the company recruiter to call.

    Had a general information gathering interview with ALEX's internal recruiter. Very general questions. Primarily used by recruiter to see if you have the basic qualifications for the position. Dictates whether your resume is passed to the hiring manager.

    Next day recieved another call and setup interview for the following day.

    Went into office for in person interview. Spoke with four (4) current employees all of whom I work with on a daily basis now. Very standard Q&A. Some technical questions regarding your background and some general personality questions. I had a physics degree so the manager asked some general "should know" questions just to test your abilities and feel you out. A few questions regarding ties to military due to natural of work.

    Received phone call before I had driven home (~30 min post interview)

    Interview Questions

    • What is entropy? (general physics b/c I had a degree in Physics)   Answer Question
    • What are Newtons laws? (another general Physocs question)   Answer Question
    • Do you have any military experience or ties to the military?   Answer Question
