    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Symetra (Bellevue, WA (US)).

    Interview

    The HR reps were very professional and open to discussion about what the position was like. They brought me into the office, say me down in the smallest meeting room that could double as a broom closet and conducted the interview. Unfortunately what they were asking for was different than what they were advertising and the position was not a good fit.
