    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Systems (Chantilly, VA).

    Interview

    After filling out an additional form for security purposes, I was invited for a phone interview. The guy who interviewed me was very friendly and we talked back and forth casually for a long time in between interview questions.
