    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Blue Bird (Fort Valley, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Overall, very sad. I was brought in for a physical. Since I saw a chiropractor in the past, they asked if I would get another physical over 30 minutes away. Found out it would be at my expense, over $400!!! I declined since the job was not guaranteed. Why should a prospective employee have to pay for the physical and at such an outrageous price? I've never dealt with a company that makes someone pay to work for them.
