    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Builders FirstSource (Houston, TX) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I went in and waited. When I talked to the interviewer, she hired me there and then. DT'd me on the spot, and I was employed. I signed some papers, and took a tour of my future job.
