    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sikich (Springfield, IL) in September 2014.


    The process was very laid-back and informal. I did really enjoy the culture of the office and how things were ran. I would say I had a very positive experience!
