    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Craigslist (San Francisco, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted within a week. Most of the questions were about my background, scams and phishing. The lady was quite polite, but asked open ended questions without a follow up. As someone who's done a fair bit of hiring, i tire of employers asking questions that can go anywhere and not having any follow up questions when they do. as with any offer not received, its' easy to read more responsibility into the other party than your own. So, perhaps it was my fault for being too open about my holiday of choice (i'm a burner), or that I could describe phishing, but blanked on the name. Ya never know what's gonna get you. overall pleasant experience and not terribly drawn out.
