    Interview Questions
    • The questions weren't too difficult, but there were some duplicates between the two interviews so it was hard to come up with a new answer to the same question.   Answer Question

    Was invited to a group interview that consisted of approximately 6 other people. There are about 5-6 questions asked; try and answer at least 3 of them. They kept a few of us in the same room we interviewed in after and had told us after they analyzed the interview that we had received the job. At this point, we filled out paperwork and set up our training date.

    Interview Details

    This will more than likely be a group interview where you will have to tell stories about how proud you were when you accomplished something great and explain why you think you will be a good fit. For this position most of your competitors will be pretty mundane and unless someone gives a really horrible answer or fails the drug test most of you will get the job.
