I attended the job fair and was brought to a huge conference room with at least 200 other people. When my number was finally called, I was taken to another room where a brief screening interview was conducted for about 5 minutes. The only question that was really asked was what my best contribution had been at my previous job. I was then taken to another room that had about 20 tables set up with interviewers. When my name was called, I was brought to a table and asked about what my career goals were for the next 5 years. I was expecting to give specific experiences from my previous work, but that was not asked. I was just basically asked if I could work a later shift and then was told how soon they are looking to start the next training class.
