    Average Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Alternative Behavior Strategies.


    I had two positive phone interviews and one in person interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager was transparent about the rewards and the challenges of the position. The primary reward is getting to be a part of the mission to improve the lives of children with autism. That it is a rapidly growing company is both an opportunity and a challenge. Getting to be part of shaping the company into what it will become is the upside.
