    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Playworks (Boston, MA (US)).

    Interview

    I had a brief phone interview with one person. I was then asked to come into the office for a second interview, which was with two people. They were both very nice and asked good questions related to the job.
