    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at John Swire & Sons (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Pretty standard, had aptitude tests, a 1-minute intro video and then an invitation to fly out for an Assessment Center either in Hong Kong, London or San Francisco. I did not get travel assistance, which was annoying for me as an East Coast resident, but that's okay. What was really bad was that their entire assessment center only lasted half an hour, which was just a group discussion of a standard managerial task priority exercise. Not necessary to make me fly out for that.
