    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gevo.

    Interview

    Received an email from HR to set up phone interview with hiring manager. Talked with hiring manager about 40 minutes, got asked at the end of the phone call to come in for an in person interview. In person interview consisted of interviewing with 4 different directors and then one group interview with the members of the group. Met with directors of different teams that worked closely with with group I was interviewing for. Also was given a lab tour and met with HR to discuss benefits package.
