    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PPG.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the National Sales Manager, then spoke with a person from HR a couple days later about my previous employer. Couple days later the National sales manager called me and made me an offer! They employ another firm to do the background and drug screening. As long as you are on top of all the emails and do things in a timely manner it's pretty seamless. So in closing,.... so far so good! :-)
