    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Tanner.


    Interviewed on campus with one partner, and I was offered a job over the phone the next day, but I decided to go into the office to meet with other partners and employees. The in office interview consisted of three interviews with three partners. I was told I would hear back within a day or two and I never heard back from anyone at the company even though I was already offered a job over the phone after my first interview.
