    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Silgan Containers (Lyons, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very pleasant and well done. Asked a variety of questions on my background and what I was expecting from silgan. Went through the benefits and pay ranges. Multiple people on the call but only one person asking the questions and responding to my questions
