    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at United Space Alliance (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Very straightforward--no real surprises. Very comfortable interview. Interview lasted about 30 minutes or so. Seemed like major focus was on understanding the culture of the workplace and how I'd fit in as a team member. It was a positive experience.
