    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Great Plains Industries.

    Interview

    Very courteous, interview was prompt when I arrived. The interview itself was not overly formal and went well. The actual interview was conducted with the manager and a few engineers, eventually asking questions about what I thought of their projects and we discussed those for a while, ending with a tour of the facility.
