    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Columbia Southern University (Orange Beach, AL).

    Interview

    Interview process was typical. Was in a room with 2 or 3 people 1 asked questions, while another took notes. They do ask if you are offended by prayer due to Christian affiliations, but I'm not sure if they can legally ask it.

    Interview Questions

    • Best/worst customer? Best/worst customer service received? Strengths/Weaknesses, Teamwork, etc.   1 Answer
