    I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Gusto (United States)


    Phone interview. It lasted about 30 minutes. I knew someone at gusto and talked a lot of odd ball regulations I learned from while owning my own business and how that learning experience could be used to help gusto clients.

    What do you bring that would be valuable to this position?
