    Hiring for manufacturing is now done through a temp service with opportunities to be brought in house. Interviewing uses includes open ended questions such as "name a time where you had to work with a team to get a job done?" or "name a time where you had to resolve a conflict with your co-workers" or "give an example of a time you had to multi-task."

    Interview Questions
