    CCR Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at thebigword (New York, NY).

    Interview

    only one interview for the whole process. no upper management interview and you will never meet with HR until after hired.

    Negotiation

    not much negotiable, everything was already set in stone it was more a leave or take.
