    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aricent (Redmond, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was called through a recruiter and the process was quite fast. Got a face to face interview with a manager in Aricent. He was unbelievable in his attitude, I would never want to work with a person like that ever!
