    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Southwire in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    First class organization. Very organized in getting my in person interviews set up and making travel arrangements. Very friendly and welcoming. I was very disappointed I did not receive an offer, they seem to be a great company. I had 2 phone interviews, then traveled to Carrolton, where I met with the HR department. I then had 2 in person interviews and a debriefing with my HR representative again.
