    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Lawson Products (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.


    1st phone review went really smooth. Interviewer stated how the interview would be conducted. Interviewer was calm and asked if there were any questions after each topic. As questions and comments were given interviewer could be heard typing answers. After interview was done a detailed explanation was given as to what would happen next.
