    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lorillard (Dorchester, SC).

    Interview

    Was called by a manager trainee, and asked if I were still interested in the job, etc.. Asked 5-6 basic questions to ensure I was serious about the job (does the salary meet your financial requirements, etc.) Then was scheduled for a online personality test of about 50-60 questions which were answered on a scale of (highly disagree - highly agree) Then was finally scheduled for an in person interview. Was brought into a hotel conference center w/ Division Manager, Assistant Division Manager, and Regional Manager. Atmosphere was friendly and professional Asked basic interview questions (what makes you the best candidate for the job, etc.)
