    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at West Marine (Watsonville, CA).

    Interview

    Initial phone interview followed by the Caliper test. The Caliper test isn't easy at all. If you score well you will be interviewed in person. If not - nope. If you are somewhere between great and not so great, you may be interviewed but a large amount of the decision is based on the outcome.
