    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NHS (DuBois, PA (US)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer asked me 9-10 fairly standard interview questions, and then the interview was over. The whole process was less than an hour; and he was very nice. He told me he was impressed with my interview, however, I have experience in this field. And they would call me when they had a client that matched the hours I desired.
