    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Initiative (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was pretty quick. I worked with a recruiter who was helpful. I met with two hiring managers. They were really nice made me feel comfortable. They gave me a chance to ask questions, talked about Initiative and asked me questions as well.
