    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at American Bureau of Shipping.

    Interview

    Extremely lengthy, Interviewers were not honest about the details of the position. I was told details about the position that pertained only to the "favorites" that already worked there. Intimidation tactics were used which made for a very uncomfortable interview.
