    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Waddell & Reed (Atlanta, GA) in December 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process is online via Skype. The prompter is nice, knowledgable and direct. The interview took about one hour. The interview took time to get to know me and my work ethic to truly evaluate my fit into the job space.
