    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sylvan (Baltimore, MD) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Good, recruiter was professional and approachable. Unfortunately that was the extent of the the likability of the company. Recruiter left shortly after I was hired, as did a majority of employees. Turnover was very high,m due to poor management at the time across all lines.
