    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Sims Group (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Very formal, but the hiring manager was not planning on staying with the company. They were negative about the company. I felt that they were unsure about their future and found it difficult to have me come in as a new temporary with an optimistic approach. I was extended an offer that day, but it took almost 6 months to be hired into the company because there were a lot of excuses to delay it longer.
