    Interview Details

    Shortly after I submitted my resume, I was called and given a short telephone interview. At the end of the interview, a time was set up to come in for a face to face interview. HR did a short company overview with a few general questions. I was then turned over to a department manager which had a couple of questions, then took me on a tour and offered me a position at the end.
