    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NGA HR in January 2017.


    Talked to the recruiter often, one meeting with management. Behavioral interview questions. Had to submit to background check and drug screen. Atmosphere with hiring manager was cordial and respectful. Got an offer but decided to go with company offering more money. Hope I don't regret my decision.
