Interview Details –
This has been the best interview process I have been through.You have 2 telephone interviews, one with HR and the other with the hiring manager. Then you are invited for an on site interview, I went through 5 interviews, plant tour lunch and benefit review. Each interviewer had about 5 behavior based interview questions.
They answered any questions, job responsibilities and benefits. The only thing we didn't discuss was salary, which I wasn't expecting until an offer was made.
They set up a town tour the day before with a realtor.This is one of the best interview processes I went through. I go on a couple interviews a year to keep up with the process.
Southern hospitality at it's best. I would have taken this job it was offered.
Interview Question – All were behavior based questions. Answer Question

Interview Details – It is definitely the worst company I've interviewed with. Went to their on-site interview. The office was filled by a bunch of old, arrogant, and rough people. They will promised you all reimbursement of your gas, hotel, and lunch and then they will find every excuse to refuse to give the reimbursement you deserve. The worst of all, it will take them about a month to decide whether they will hire you. Even if they give me an offer, I would rather stay away from this terrible company.
Interview Question – All normal behavior questions Answer Question
