    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at George Mason University.

    Interview

    Three parts - phone, in person, and presentation.
    The phone part was a panel of people, so it was difficult to get an idea of who was speaking.
    The in person and presentation parts were also multiple people.

    Interview Questions

    • They made sure to ask if I was willing to accept the salary range in the in person interview, before the presentation, and long before the part where I'd expect to discuss salary.   1 Answer
    • Sorry - not something from them - but important:
      I told them I thought culture was important, and asked them if they thought teamwork was important.
