    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at LocalEdge (Abilene, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The process was pretty quick. You have one phone screen with HR, If they decide to move forward then you get a face to face interview with hiring manager. The thirds step is a phone interview with the RVP. The process takes about one month to complete.

    Interview Questions

    • There is a piece of paper with a scenario on it. They will ask you to prepare for 5 minutes and then sell the products.   Answer Question
