    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Orbital Sciences.

    Interview

    I applied online and about a week later was called to schedule an interview. Due to time conflicts I was not able to interview in person however they allowed me to do interview over the phone. Two people conducted the phone interview. There was a very quick turnaround so I only did one interview.
