    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Alleghany Corporation (Downingtown, PA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online with my resume, cover letter and work samples. Do a lot of research about the company so you can know what to say or predict what a hiring manager would ask of you in the interview process.
