Advice to Management
Keep hiring great people, that is the lifeblood of the organization.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Applied Research Laboratories (Austin, TX) in July 2016.
I was seated with two people. They asked me questions ranging from my favorite math class, to the languages I know. It seems like this was the first time they really read through my resume.
