    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alcon (Houston, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    watching a power point introduction about the job there with some details about the managers name and the laws, after that we do the exam about that, if you pass the exam you'll be hired.
