    I applied online. I interviewed at Schindler Elevator Corporation (Morristown, NJ).


    The interview went very well. I hit it off with the hiring manager on both past work experiences as well as personal hobbies. I was at the office for several hours, I was also introduced to the team I would be working with.

    I was promised opportunities to travel to/work with the other international offices, which never panned out later.
