    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Colorado Springs, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Summit Technical Solutions (Colorado Springs, CO) in November 2016.


    I was contacted by an employee of STS asking if I would be interested in a position available in their Corporate Headquarters. After researching STS and reading the Job Posting on their website, I decided the position was a good fit and applied to the Posting on STS' Careers website. Several days later I was contacted by a Recruiter, who conducted a phone screen interview discussing my skills and job history. A few days later, I was contacted by the Recruiter who scheduled an in-office group/panel interview for the next week. I completed the panel interview and received an offer letter after approximately one week.
