    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Wimsatt Building Materials in October 2017.

    Interview

    Responded to an add on Craigslist. Was asked to come in and fill out an app and to do an interview.During the interview I was briefed on the position and the company. After the interview I did a test for English and math. The benefits they offer are good along with the pay. The hours in season are long. The only thing keeping me away from the job really was you have to work every other Saturday and missing some time with the family. Seems like a great opportunity though.
