I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Key & Associates, P.C. (Silver Spring, MD) in April 2010.
They needed to hire someone immediately for a new contract. There was an accounting knowledge assessment test administered before the interview, and it was reviewed during the interview(not sure how well I did or if I even passed). Interview seemed pretty simple and straight forward. I basically winged it during the interview. I completed my bachelor degree 5 months after starting work there. I hear they use Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality tests now, although I (and science) don't think they're an effective means of finding quality candidates.
Got hired within a day or two. Came back in to sign everything. Negotiated salary up to a more reasonable fair market value that I based on the Robert Half Salary Guide.
