    Interview Details

    I applied for the position of Warehouse Material Handler online, and a couple days later got a phone call for an interview. At the office I waited about 10 minutes before being called into the interview. The vibe and questions for the interview were fairly standard - generally they asked about my work history, as well as my qualifications and desires for the job. I was also asked if I was physically fit, and able to lift boxes and operate machinery, while staying on my feet for hours at a time. They also informed me that I would need to pass a drug test to get the job. The interview probably lasted about 20-25 minutes.
