    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at First Solar.

    Interview

    Had a couple preliminary conversations with HR. She was friendly and helpful she forwarded me on to a Director for a phone interviewer. The director asked some pretty generic questions about experience, thoughts on solar, and then described the position at greater length. Then I had a half day interview with 6 or 7 people in 30 minute intervals.

    Thorough process, background check etc. Heard it's a great place to get into. I just hope they are open to the possibility of a different type of candidate. Great workers vary in looks.

    The first guy asked me basic questions about my resume and some behavioral questions.
