    Assembly Interview

    Interview

    Phone interview, drug test, physical, back ground check, if everything checks out hired. It takes about 7 to 10 days from initial offer of employment until working. Also this company will hire you before the background check comes back, so if it comes back undesirable, they will terminate your employment.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The pay is not disclosed until you start. All assembler are offered 10 dollars and hour.
    I personally negotiated 14.50 and hour, with 2 raises a year. First and second raise I received was 75 cents. So my recommendation is to no your worth, and if you know what you're doing they will pay. But I still know that my contributions require a higher wage. No vacation for 1 year, 2 weeks vacation no matter how long you have worked there. No sick time, a few major holidays are paid for, the insurance is very expensive.
