    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sandvik (Gainesville, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Interview conducted by a temp agency. General application for employment submitted. Followed be resume submission. The contact period was roughly one week in time. Although the interview was processed by a temp agency, the criteria for the position was clearly laid out, and the HR department for Sandvik had final say in approval in the hiring process.
