How many interviews?  

A qualified candidate can expect a three-stage process after applying for a position: a recruiting phone interview, an onsite skill-set interview, and a final onsite interview. These interviews and assessments allow the recruiter and hiring manager to be absolutely sure that the candidate has the skills needed to do the job, and is a culture fit for the team and company. Both aspects are crucial to the success in our hire.

  • 20 to 45 minutes phone call
