    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at RTI International.


    I submitted my application online and heard back from an HR representative a month later, who asked me about my availability for a phone screening in the next 48 hours. We spoke, and I was told to expect an answer within the next two weeks. During that time, I followed up with additional questions I had, but received no response. Over a month later, I received an email referencing a conversation with an HR employee I had never spoken to to set up a second phone screening. The second interviewer was friendly and knowledgeable. I was told I would hear back within a week; there was a delay, though I was notified this time. I received a boilerplate rejection email not long thereafter. I responded, asking for feedback on what would've made me a stronger candidate, but received no response.
