    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Challenger, Gray & Christmas (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I interviewed with two individuals that left the company in less than a year. Ii was screened by a wonderful woman who made me feel very comfortable and at ease. My interviewer did not share that the position had little discretion or collaboration, but I am not sure that he was aware of the way the company works. Both individuals seemed as if they were recruiters that were brought in for a specific period of time to "get the job done."
