    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sesame Workshop in September 2016.

    Interview

    It wasn't a long process at all. I appiled one week through the companys website and got contacted back one week later to come in. I thought the interview was going well. The interviewer asked me questions based on my resume and we even started to have conversations about lighter topics. All in all I thought the interview went great. After the interview I was told I would get contacted back the next week about a second interview but it never happened, and even to this day I never recieved any follow up from the interviewer regarding my standing.
