    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Tootsie Roll in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred to the job by a former co-worker of mine who had been recently hired. I forwarded my resume to hr late Thursday night and by noon Friday I had an interview scheduled for the following week. I took the altitude tests and talked with the department manager. Was offered to continue the hiring process as soon as a background check and drug and fitness tests were complete. Drug and fitness tests were completed within an hour and now I'm waiting for the background check to continue. The aptitude test was the Ramsay EIT (electronics and instrumentation technician test). The test was scored that day and the manager was able to go over my score and how I rated compared to the current employees in the department.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There really wasn't much negotiation due to the job being the pay I wanted and the shift I wanted along with being a union position.
