You sit around at a table with the other interviewees scheduled for the same time as you and wait for your name to be called. Then once you’re called, youre brought into a large room where there are maybe 6-7 other people being interviewed for the same and different positions. You’re interviewed. I was told right after the interview i had a job offer. Went through background check, it took two-three weeks, and I have Orientation this Saturday.

Its not a happy place to work. Everyone says hello but just to see if they are a good standing member in the work gang. There is NOT a shortage of work to do there but instead they are contently playing politics instead of doing their job.
