    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Discover (Salt Lake City, UT).


    Applied. Was contacted a few days later for a phone interview. It lasted about a half hour and was general questions. Then contacted a few days later for an in person interview. Interview lasted a few hours. Afterwards did not hear anything for a few weeks, but noticed that the job was re-posted without any response from the hiring manager or HR.
