    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PQ in March 2016.

    Interview

    Received initial phone call after resume submission from HR representative. Then set up time to speak with hiring manager. Sent email within a week of the interview where an offer was then extended. Reviewed offer and accepted. Set up a tour to see the plant before starting.
