    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aquent in January 2017.

    Interview

    Very quick and casual. Did not ask any behavioral questions, only questions on my relevant experience. It is helpful if you are familiar with the company and able to answer why you want to work there vs other recruiting firms.
