You first submit your resume then you get a call back. After you go on 2 separate interviews with the managers. If they hire you they'll call you back within a few weeks. Then you go down n get fingered printed and background-check. You will receive your start date n take your photo for an ID card. Then you will begin your new job. It will take at least a month from start to finish roughly.
