    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at HUSCO International (Waukesha, WI) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Had a recruiter come to my college campus where we had a brief talk. I followed up with our talk and received an in person interview at their location. It was a very easy going interview where they made me feel comfortable. Met with 3 different people, then was on my way home.
