    Positive Experience


    I applied at the beginning of July, and was contacted a few days later for my initial phone screening. The recruiter was nice and very polite. She also did a great job with keeping in contact with me throughout the process, which I really appreciated. The entire process took a month. They all seem like very good people and I’m looking forward to working with them!
