    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Austin Powder (McArthur, OH) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Was called in for an interview a week after submitting a resume. The interview was short and sweet and not a lot of questions were asked. There was some paperwork that was filled out and then I was sent for a drug test.
