    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SGS.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application online, and was contacted for an initial (short) phone interview with an HR specialist. She was very nice, and after a couple of questions told me I would be forwarded on to the next level. The next interview was another short interview with the administrative manager at the local facility. He was very pleasant, and we discussed the job and salary requirements. I was invited for a face-to-face the same week. At that interview, I met the facility manager as well as the gentleman I spoke with on the phone. We had a great talk about the job, responsibilities, expectations on both sides; I even learned something about the industry, which was very cool. After a few days, I was contacted by the HR Specialist again, who informed me I wasn't selected for the position. There had only been one other candidate, and she felt that they hired that person based on a lower salary requirement. I understood this; everyone has a bottom line they have to watch.
