  • We are a flock of fierce animal lovers! Every year one of our birds takes the lead on collecting donations and goods for the MSPCA and Animal Rescue League to help furry friends (because, sometimes, it's not only people who need a little help). This year enough donations we raised for bluebird to sponsor a kennel for a full calendar year! #bluebirddays #thisispersonal #animallovers

    I applied online. I interviewed at bluebird bio.


    It was a half an hour phone call interview. The interviewer was not at all intimidating and was more interested in knowing ether I was a fit for the company or not.
