Getting Hired Here

  • “Interview was great because I was not grilled on behavioral questions or my skills, but my interviewers instead focused on the culture fit since I can always learn technical skills later. I felt like I was seen as a person instead of just another candidate.”
  • “The recruiter I worked with was very kind and connected me with multiple teams to make sure I found a good spot within the company with my skill set.”
  • “Fifteen-minute screener with recruiter, 30-minute meeting with team leader. My recruiter responded promptly to my application and emails. The interview process was efficient and lasted about 1 week from initial contact to the final interview. USCC was respectful of my time as an applicant and clearly outlined the next steps of the process.”
  • “I liked the hiring process, my recruiter was really helpful and communicative and everything moved along really quickly in my experience. I had one interview with my manager and two other members of the team, and was focused mostly on relevant experiences and going over the skills that would be required in this role (Python, SQL, etc.). I felt very comfortable throughout the whole process and everyone was very friendly.”
