    Interview

    The hiring process was fast only took 2 weeks. They were impressively fast on following up. So first you'll do the Online application. Be ready to be online for a while. It's a long application that's really more like a personality test. Then you'll receive an email for the Video interview where it's a one way interview and you get to answer a series of questions and you have a few seconds to answer. Then you'll receive an email for a phone interview and you'll need to choose when they can best call you. This is really more just to reiterate what you said on your video interview and a few more reminders on what to expect if hired. Then lastly the F2F interview where you are invited to the headquarters. First you do an ice breaker, then a briefing of what the job is, salary & benefits. Then finally a face to face interview with management. That's where my journey ended as I was not a match for the job.

    Just be yourself. Research well on the company way before your F2F interview . They will definitely see right thru you if you're not fit for this job. Also helps if you're attractive and younger(cause this is a front line job after all!) on top of your work experience and how well you interview. So best of luck!
