The interview process is long! You go through a lot of testing and interviewing and if your chosen an EXSTENSIVE physcological screening and they dig waaaay into every piece of your past. At the one here they hire a private investagator to check you out to. I also had to pay out of pocket to take one of the tests in the beginning. Overall it takes 1-3 months before your actually hired and then you train and shadow for 3 months before you are on your own to answer calls.
