It’s been 6 weeks and I still haven’t heard a peep. I emailed them today and they said they are still considering applicants.

anyone know what questions they ask?? A list would be GREAT :)
During my interview, they didn’t have a set list of questions they asked. They kind of just wanted to get to know you and it was open for you to ask any type of questions you wanted. It was more of a conversation then them pressuring you with a list of questions.
