    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at New York ISO (Rensselaer, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    i applied to the position internally because i was interested in making a move to another department. so the interview was scheduled by HR and there were 3 people present, including the hiring manager himself, another manager who the hiring manager invited, and an engineer from the department. i was bombarded with all kinds of questions from start to finish and they took notes galore. to make a long story short, in the end, and for some unknown reason to me, i did not get the job.
