    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BBVA Compass.


    The first step was a phone screen. The woman called me and it was quick and enjoyable--as much as an interview can be. About a month later, she wanted to set up another phone call with me. She asked the same questions she had the first time, almost as if she didn't remember our first interview.
