    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Dow Corning (Greensboro, NC).

    Interview

    Good questions were asked that should be included from any employer. They wanted to make sure that they are getting the perfect selection for the position. They also took time to understand and get to know who they were hiring.
