    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at First Student (Wichita, KS).

    Interview

    Came in for interview on like a Thursday or Friday, spent probably 5 minutes talking about past employer and why I decided to change path. Then spent another 5 minutes answering specific questions about feelings of the position. Asked about being able to start training on that following Monday. Overall it took about 15 minutes
