Greg Cunningham discussed through chat the job description and that I shall be working from home. He then asked 15 questions about my professional background like a regular job interview. The next morning, Jan. 23, 2018, he told me that I am qualified for the job and that I will undergo two-weeks of training for the software. He told also me that the company will send a check for me to buy equipments such as Macbook laptop and all-in-one printer to set-up my home mini-office.
