The interview was rather short and pretty relaxed for the most part. It started with an hour presentation over the company that reviewed how it was started, who runs it, company goals/plans, schedules, pay, and benefits. After the presentation was over, they selected interviewees to either go to a room to sit down with HR first or go to a room to sit down with somebody who will ask you technical questions.

The HR interview was rather simple and fast as it took only about 5 to 10 minutes. The technical portion was a bit longer and was... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  9. I applied back in March, and I was not contacted for an interview until the end of July. Overall, my experience with the interview group at Southern/Atlas was great. I am currently an FO at a regional, but applied in hopes of changing things up a bit.
