Machine Operator Interview

Machine Operator
Grapevine, TX

The process took 3 days - interviewed at Harland Clarke in January 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online, and got a phone call 2 days later. I set up an interview. I met with the HR manager, and a team leader of some sort. They were friendly and didn't make me feel uncomfortable. After that interview I had to take a series of tests, which included an IQ/Intelligence test, a mechanical reasoning test and a personality assessment. I was told they would get back to me in a week, but they phoned me the very next day to offer me the job. I went up there the next day to discuss my job offer. I was told what the pay and benefits would be, and I was given information about taking the drug test, and permission for a background check.
