    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at West Fraser Timber (Quesnel, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    The process took a very long time, but it was worth it.

    I applied online and ~ 2 months later I received a phone call from the company.
    I had an initial interview with one person. 1 week later later I had a phone panel interview with the group that I would be working along side. 2 weeks later I had a phone interview with the Manager and the group. They asked me for all my references including a picture of my High School Diploma, transcript/picture of my degree, and work references.

    After they called all my work references and checked my education. The following week I received a call to schedule a face to face interview with the Manager and to take a tour of the facility.

    I received an offer 1.5 weeks after returning home from the face to face interview if I can pass the drug and physical testing. I did.

    I highly recommend the company.
