Interview Details – this process seemed to be slightly longer than most it included several phone interviews as well as a one on one along with a couple of "what would you do" situational questions and a comprehension test

Production Supervisor Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Celgard in April 2012.
Interview Details – Used a staffing agency in which my resume and skills were reviewed and used to match myself with position. It was a group interview for 45 minutes talking about the position, interview questions, and the ability to ask your own questions. There were a set of candid questions followed by questions that were required by the company. Like in any interview, its always good practice to provide answers to the questions that connect to the position in order for the interviewer to visualize you in the job. its also important to have a personality that fits the company culture.
Interview Question – What was a decision you made in which you weighed the pros and cons and why you made that decisions? Answer Question
