    I applied online. I interviewed at Henley Enterprises.


    Interview was short and sweet. I really like when the interviewer and i connect and it's not just about my resume. He wanted to know more about my personality and other characteristics versus the time line of my past work experience. I'm still waiting on drug test results and background before i proceed.

    None existent unfortunately. Pay is extremely low.
