Screening Interviews

The interview process is designed so that we can get to know you in a way that a simple multiple choice test could never do. All applicants are given the same set of open-ended questions. This is your chance to let us know what makes you a great candidate.

Here are some things to keep in mind for a successful interview:

  • Dress appropriately. Wear clean clothes, shoes.
  • Groom your hair, hands, teeth, etc.
