    Friendly process. The company gets intouch with you in a timely manner as to weather you have the position. The interview process consists about three to four interviews sessions.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Harland Clarke (New Braunfels, TX) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I was recruited via a cold call recruiting agency and told that I would be doing a phone interview with a specific person at a specific time, but that person never called. I had to call the recruiter to let them know and it took 3 days before someone finally called. I accepted the position at a higher pay rate; however, once I was hired on by the company as a full time employee, my pay rate was drastically reduced even though my responsibilities increased. I've never heard of companies doing that before.

    Application

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Harland Clarke (Grapevine, TX) in January 2012.

    Interview

    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.
