The best thing you can do to prep for an in-person interview here is not what you would typically think is appropriate. In a normal professional interview setting you would expect to possess the skills listed in the job description and then be prepared to discuss your experiences and skills related to them. Here, you only need to read a book called Ideal Team Player by Patrick Lencioni – study the “virtues” he espouses (hungry, humble, smart) and then intentionally demonstrate a balance of these attributes to your interviewer. The questions you will be asked do not relate to the job you are applying to – so instead prepare answers (based on hungry/humble/smart) to questions such as: who are you? What is your favorite color? Now describe that color to someone who has never had eyesight. What are you most proud of in your life? Describe a situation in your life where you failed and how you handled it. If you could eat dinner with one person alive or dead who would it be, and where would you take them? Also, you should expect to take a DiSC personality test as well as a written “logic test.” Expect the interview (including tour, interview, and tests) to take about 2 hours. They will tell you that they all meet up every couple of weeks to discuss the pool of candidates. Then if “they” unanimously like you, you are passed along to another unspecified person who then contacts you. You shouldn’t expect the professional courtesy of being told where you stand in the process – so if you don’t hear back (no time frame given) then you didn’t get the job. There are not a definitive number of positions they are trying to fill, it’s just a continuously revolving door of people being “interviewed” for the positions that are re-posted over and over again.

You may encounter a hostile interviewer, so be prepared to fend off personal attacks, resume disparagement, and a general sneering and offensive nature. To he honest, you should also be prepared to wall out of the interview, as that's the environment you would be working in if you stick around.

If you are a person with conviction and motivation, don't bother with Clark. Any dissidents are shot down or fired quickly. This place has one of the highest turnover rates of any place I've ever worked.
