    Easy Interview


    The process was fairly quick. I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter via email. She sent a detailed job description along with a video describing the job and asked me to read and review the information to see if i was still interested. I reviewed it and was offered a interview a week later. The interview was very brief and mainly consisted of her telling me what the job consisted of, the long hours and physical demanding work it required. If offered a position a fitness test is required. Had the interview today, not sure if offered a job yet. But was told that she had a few interviews to finish up and would get back to me.
