    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I submitted resume and filled out application on website. I was contacted by a recruiter who was exceptional. I then was asked to take an online personality test. The recruiter again contacted me to set up an interview with the General Manager and Operations Manager. It can be a long process but only because Patterson wants to make sure you are a good fit.
