    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Carpenter Technology (Reading, PA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of two parts, first with two men and then two women. It took about an hour or so. They asked personal questions and seemed to want to trip me up by asking weird things."

    I said "Nothing. I'm the size of an olive. I'm dead. "

    Interview Questions

    • If you were shrunk down to the size of an olive and dropped into a blender, what would you do?"   2 Answers
