    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sungevity (Marlboro, NJ) in June 2014.

    Found them through craiglist Sent them my email and contact information. They got back to me asked me a bunch of questions about my experience and salary requirments. They asked me to come to a job and that was essentially the real interview. Meet the crew and worked a full day with them. Learned how they did things. We hit it off well and they asked me to come back the next day. After working there for a couple years now I've seen other guys go through the same thing. Essentially you just have to prove than you have a good work ethic and can show up on time.
