    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Valspar (High Point, NC) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty relaxed. It felt more like a meet and greet than an interview. I was able to laugh with the interviewer. For a moment, we started talking about family. He asked more about my experience when I intern ina third world country which had nothing to do with the job. However, all that happened after I talked about my skills.
