    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gillig (Hayward, CA) in January 2017.


    I received a phone interview then was scheduled for a 4 hours interview with the director of HR, hiring manager, controller, and the VP. It was a one on one interview with each person. It ended earlier though.
