    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Orbital Sciences (Phoenix, AZ (US)).

I was alone with the first interviewer for about 20 minutes, I was alone with the second interviewer for about 50 minutes, and the third interviewer joined in for an additional 25. They called me six days later to offer the position and I accepted.
