    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SMC Corporation (Noblesville, IN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very laid back interview process, Was contacted first by phone for a phone interview and then later went in for a formal interview. Was asked some very general interview questions, more of a "get-to-know-you" experience, then shown the facility.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SMC Corporation in February 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted resume through their website and got a call in a few days which I missed. Spent over a week trying to get back in touch with them while they weren't returning my calls. Finally about two weeks later I received a call apologizing for not getting back to me but they wanted to set up an interview in the next week. Interview was structured with most of the focus being on the details of my resume. Asked standard canned questions when the person appeared to get irritated with my response and slammed his folder shut. Had a great second interview with the branch manager with all of the same questions. The communication from the beginning was spotty and sometimes felt border line unprofessional. Given my experience I would not have pursued this opportunity.
