    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Wildlife Conservation Society.

    Interview

    Was interviewed by two people, the interview was relaxed and conversational. Few formal questions. Received a call before the interview asking for my preferred salary and whether I would be available to work a part time schedule.
