    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Ancestry.

    Interview

    Months and months of interviews, and then you find out that they can't hire you in the state you live in. Could have been answered by reading the address on the top of the resume. They might off to make you a contractor, but I declined because everyone's told me that they don't actually give you any work.
