    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BBC (Edina, MN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was described the job then I was asked a few questions then forwarded on to a second interview . The second interview was very informative and he asked if I had any questions. Then I had to meet with the person that I had the first interview with and he asked if the person who did the second interview was professional then he said he'd call me within a couple hours and let me know if I got the job.
