Interview Details – I applied online on their website and a few days later I received an e-mail asking me the times that I was available for to come in for a few tests. These tests ended up being the Wonderlic test, where you have 12 minutes to do 50 questions. You do not need to complete them all, but the more correct, the better your chances are. If you pass this test, you take something called a PEQ, which is basically a personality test. I passed these both with flying colors and the woman I talked to gave me a packet of what the job would entail and she was really excited for me to start working. We scheduled a phone interview for the next afternoon and I was up for hours trying to figure out my work stories and how I would answer certain questions. The woman called on time, but the first thing out of her mouth was, "well I have something we should talk about. The position that you applied for has been overbooked and it is full. We can put you on a list and you will get a call to continue the process when something opens up." Needless to say, I was done. The process there is so difficult to get past and even if you apply, and get the interviews, the jobs might not even be there in the first place. For a company that values honesty and integrity so much, they sure do not have much of it. I seriously doubt all the positions were full within 24 hrs.
