    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Highmark Health.

    Interview

    First round phone interview after they had canceled their scheduled campus interviews. Basic walk me through your resume questions. Interview only lasted about 15 minutes and the interviewer seemed very disinterested throughout
