    Average Interview


    Had several phone interviews that led into an in-person interview over the course of several weeks. After the in-person interview, I waited for over 2 weeks to get a general reply in the mail telling me I didn’t get the position.

    Mostly related to my experience in the industry and what their schedule looks like.
