    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston Whaler (Edgewater, FL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Phone Screening, Initial Interview, Panel Interview with four people in the department, then a final interview with my boss. The interviews were not difficult, but they were nerve racking. I felt good about the process when it was all said and done.
