I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Author Solutions (Bloomington, IN) in January 2018.
Unprofessional interviewer not qualified. Nervous, no testing, no background or talk of previous employment. Interviewer acted superior, and didn’t know what he was doing. Obviously uncomfortable with the interview process. Left thinking it was a joke.
