    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Powell Industries (Houston, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The process took several months from when I first submitted my resume until I was contacted by Human Resources. Once contacted, the process went fairly quickly, but I already had other opportunities by that time as well. They were not open to meeting some of the benefits offered by other companies.
