    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    Interview

    Came to career fair at my university, I was allowed to sign up for an interview time without even dropping off a resume. Interviewed, the process was pleasant. After some get-to-know-you questions (school, interests, etc), a few technical questions were asked. I was given paper to write out some pseudo code for a sort.

    Reasons for Declining
