    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Solo Cup in October 2011.

    Interview

    I was hired through a temp agency that was on site. It was fairly easy to apply short test nothing too hard about it. They show you a little of the production plant to give you an idea of what to expect. Now that Dart has bought out Solo the temp agency is no longer and I do believe they hire directly from Dart. How they are doing the hiring process I'm not sure since I left in November 2013.
