    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Peabody in June 2019.

    Interview

    Submitted application and received email to schedule a phone screening the next day. Had a phone interview with site a couple weeks later. Had on-site a month after that, would have been earlier but they were nice enough to work with my schedule. Received offer week after.
