    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fort Wayne Metals (Fort Wayne, IN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process for me was relatively fast in part due to this companies current growth rate. From start to finish I will say it took about a months time and that is definitely "fast track" for this company.
