    Interview Questions
    • Very simple interview, they basically wanted to know if you could figure anything out mechanically. They seemed pretty excited to just have someone that could breathe on there own.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    After getting my offer and seeing the plant I decided that the company was just not a good place to work. The older emplyees have a pension so, they were willing to work for less that I could. The pay was fair not good or great and the management was not really up to the speed I was looking for. Also most of the places that you would move to after completing your training were really out in the middle of no where. I really didn't want someones thumb on me.
