    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Compassion International (Colorado Springs, CO) in April 2015.


    Submitted resume online, received a call for an interview with HR, moved to 2nd interview with Director, and then brought in for interviews with various people of the team. The people were all very nice. Seemed liked a great place to work. Highly recommend Compassion.
