Advice to Management
Keep up the great work!
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Support.com (Atlanta, GA) in November 2015.
Interview was pretty basic. Was told interview would take 1 hour however I was only on the phone for 25 minutes.....not sure if that is good or bad?!?! Did Role Play to review my customer service response.
