    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Subaru of America (Wichita, KS) in May 2013.

    Interview

    it was very relaxed. Filled out the job application and asked me about myself. I interviewed that same day and later heard back on whether or not I was hired.
