    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at International Paper.

    Interview

    I went through temp agency for a direct hire position. There is testing done before interview. If you have worked in manufacturing before it will be easy for you., questions are based on procedures and capabilitity of analyzing to problem solve. Are you motivated or lazy? If you pass you proceed to interview.
