    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Synapse Group (Stamford, CT) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I was so excited to be to be able to interview with this company. My first interview was with the director of HR. She was amazingly informative and such a delight to interview. She made me feel very comfortable so it seemed more like a casual conversation than an interview. After a few days, I was invited back for a second interview with the Director of operations; very nice man. This interview wasn't too much more difficult. It seemed like during both interviews, they were trying to get a good feel for the proper fit with the company and team. He asked questions like "What is the most substantial thing you learned at your last two positions". Unfortunately it took them a whole month to decide that they were keeping the temp they had been working with.
