    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hunter Industries (San Diego, CA) in February 2010.


    I was given a phone interview which consisted of them asking about behavioral questions as well as assessing your technical skills. The interview was surprisingly pretty difficult. I would definitely be prepared to be asked about your Problem Solving method and how you would deal with issues that arise during projects.
