    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GKN in October 2017.

    Interview

    I initially received a call from the talent acquisition team, they called 3 days after applying. My interview was 5 days later, the first interview consisted of a 3 person panel. The panel consisted of 2 value stream managers and the HR manager. Immediately after I was complete with the panel interview, I was escorted to the management office area and I interviewed with the V.P. of Operations. I received my offer 5 business days later.
