    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at KVH Industries (Daytona Beach, FL) in April 2019.


    The process took 15 minutes, and was overall positive. Be able to answer questions about projects on your resume! Definitely more casual conversation, they're interested if you would be a good fit more than technical skills.
