    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at RSM (Orlando, FL) in February 2020.


    The recruiting process moved fast and was an overall pleasant experience. Two interviews. The first one was on campus, where they asked basic interview questions like tell me about yourself and tell me about a time ___. The second one was through the Webex video conference, where we went over my resume and talked about my experience at my previous job.
