    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Tyco in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. The staffing agency has been horrendous throughout this entire process, kudos to Tyco for sticking with me. The interviewer didn't really ask a question, she just explained the position for an hour. The position is very overwhelming, but the interviewer explained it very well. She only asked very generic predictable questions, and even when I tried to answer she steamrolled me and went back into describing the position's duties.
