    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CAL POLY (San Luis Obispo, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    First applied through email (sent resume), then got a phone interview in which they tell me if I got the job in a few days. Questions were fairly simple, they just wanted to know more about me and if I would fit in with the rest of the employees.
