    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at City Year (Washington, DC) in July 2007.

    Interview

    A relaxed service oriented environment. The office culture seems to be able to get done what needs to be done while also maintain a level of professionalism. The work culture was very open-minded and had a very inclusive vibe to it. The interview was no longer than an hour long and was very relaxed
