    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ICON (Baltimore, MD) in September 2011.

    Interview

    I met with various employees from administrative assistants to division head. Each person described how we would work together and asked me pertinent questions about my background and skills. The hiring manager was very difficult to read in terms of reactions to my responses. I got the offer so it must have been okay.
