The foundation for our EHS program is training, participation and empowerment. We all share the responsibility for following established policies and procedures identifying and reporting potential EHS concerns, maintaining relevant documents, and knowing the emergency contacts, procedures, and evacuation plans at our respective facilities.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at General Dynamics Land Systems (London, ON (Canada)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Preliminary interview by phone. Mostly cursory general questions. Lasted about 20 minutes. Subsequently, success would go on to a personal interview. This is a panel of 3, the hiring manager, a supervisor, and an analyst. Lasted more than an hour. Most probably 75 minutes.
