    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Berkshire (Grapevine, TX) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Friendly, and they want to know who you are as a person so they can assess you into their culture which I respect. We had it in a conference room for the first and in an office for the second.
