    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at General Dynamics Land Systems (Lima, OH) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Laid back and in depth. They did ask some situational questions but also asked things about my past experience and how it could relate to what they do at GD or how it could be different.
