    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Darden (Orlando, FL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    First round was a one-hour phone interview with the manager of the position. Second round was a 30-minute phone interview with the head of the CRM division. Third round was a 5+ hour on-site interview with the above-mentioned manager and division head, as well as brand representatives for four Darden brands.
