    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Whelen Engineering Company (Charlestown, NH) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process was fairly straightforward. I was refereed to work at whelen by a friend. I was able to bypass the whole Co-works debacle. I had a few interview questions which i will outline below and i had to pass a drug test and a background check.
    1) Why do you want to work here?
    2) Explain a time when you had to work in a team with people you did not like.
    3) What are your life goals and how will Whelen help you achieve them?
