    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at City of Houston (Houston, TX) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Great, Interview process was lengthy but worth it. Got the job in the end. I prepped well for the interview which helped a lot and they could tell. The whole interview lasted an hour and 10 minutes, short assessment and 30 minute interview.
