    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Symmetricom.

    Interview

    The process was quick and efficient. I submitted my application and resume. A few days later, a recruited contacted me to schedule a time for a phone screen. The recruiter was awesome, very professional and straight to the point.

    Shortly after that I was invited in for a first round interview. A few days later, came in for the second interview. Their background checking process was also efficient. The offer came shortly after that.
