    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Baker Electric (Escondido, CA) in December 2017.


    I was contacted by the Baker recruiter, who conducted a general recruitment screening by providing me more information about the position and verifying my skills, work history, and education qualify me for the role. This was a great experience and the recruiter was friendly, likeable, and represented the organization well.

    Next, I was invited to a panel interview that included several company leadership team members, who engaged me in an open dialogue for an hour and fifteen minutes or so.

    Then, I participated in a second panel interview with different company leadership team members, with new and more questions. This interview was approximately 90 minutes and was followed by a tour of the premises.

    Lastly, I was administered an assessment.
