    Interview Details

    At a career fair I gave my resume, and was immediately asked to choose from a selection of interview times for a same-day interview.

    Interview process was very straight forward with no curve balls or anything. The recruiters were very easy to talk to and made the whole process very smooth. Most of the questions they asked were about my resume, past work experience and behavioral based questions. They also asked a few questions based on basic supply chain knowledge.
