    Interview process was great. Had 3 interviews and all were very professional. But after all the time spent no one called or mailed or emailed to notify me of their decision. It seemed like they had their interprocess down but dropped the ball at the end to those who were not selected. Like we didn’t matter.

    Standard background questions were asked.
