I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Premier Asset Management (NV) (Austin, TX) in March 2013.
I started working there as a temp. I soon found that they were looking to fill a permanent position and since the property was fun, coworkers were nice and helpful and supervisor was very knowledgeable & welcoming, I was interested.
I got what I asked for, even though I thought it was out of the ball park for the position. But I think they like me from the get go :)
