    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kingsgate Logistics (West Chester, OH) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Very easy conversation. They were understanding and I could tell I would enter an environment of learning. There was a typical phone screen with HR and then a phone AND in-person interview with my hiring manager. They were very timely, and I can tell their company, as well as the industry, is growing exponentially.
