    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Checkr (United States)


    HR reached out after a week to schedule an interview. The HR interview went really well and recruiter was super nice. I was asked to proceed to second interview, took PTO just for them to cancel the day before. I now see the position was filled internally
