    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at UncommonGoods (Brooklyn, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It was a group interview that was followed by a one on one by two different people. I found it very relaxing and very welcoming! It was one of my favorite experiences interviewing ever!
