    LAM Master Mechanic Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at BIC (Milford, CT) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Very layback, and friendly. I was required to take a mechanics standardized test, called the Minimizer. The test was set up so that the company can gage a persons mechanical aptitude.
    The test is definitely NOT hard. Specially if you have any mechanical common sense. But it is also, not for someone who has never held a tool in their hands. Very neat!
