    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Western Washington University.

    Interview

    Panel Interview very fair, there was maybe 30 questions, by the end of it I felt they had a pretty good idea as to what kind of employee I would be. Western reached out to me the following month. my only criticism is that the process was slow.
