    Interview

    There was an on-campus interview, then I received a "golden ticket" to go to their huge on-site recruiting event. There were 70+ applicants and over 140 recruiters. The first day there was a job-fair style event where you got to see all of the different mills and see which ones you liked before you ranked them all on your preference list. The second day was a mill tour, then two interviews and a group activity in which they monitor how you work in a group. After the interviews you eat dinner and they sit you next to a recruiter from your top priority mill.
