    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at US Patent and Trademark Office.

    Interview

    Applied online, after about 2 weeks, I got an email for an online/phone interview. They asked typical behavioral questions. It's was a very simple process, but it seems like the interview did not matter if you were selected or not in the end.
