    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Discover.


    Had a phone screening, then three phone interviews. Phone screening asked about qualifications and resume. First phone interview was behavioral questions, second was just a casual conversation, third was an opportunity to ask questions. Very friendly people. Genuinely wanted to get to know me.
