    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at L.A. Care Health Plan (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2014.


    It was a rather informal process. I had 1 interview with someone who later went on to be my preceptor. Everyone was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. They asked typical interview questions. Overall, the interview was conversational and I enjoyed the experience.
