    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Westat.

    Interview

    The process is long and pretty in depth for a temp assignment. The interviewer was very personable and read from a script. The first step is a phone interview and then you will be invited to an in-person interview. The in -person interview is about an hour long where the interviewer also reads from a script.
