Apply. Wait until the job post closes and wait a month to two months to get a call for an interview. Then they schedule it two days out so you don’t have time to plan. You meet with 3 people who normally have a person picked for the job before you get there. They are writing down what they can on the paper so they get points for a matrix instead of look
At you. Review the job description online and on the job post. Memorize it and spit it out before you get there. Then you wait another month and a half for a call back if you got the job or not. After accepting it you schedule your finger prints within a month. Then back ground checks take another two months. Then you get there and start applying every where else to get out.
