Hiring process was about three weeks. First is an interview, then a weld test. If you pass the weld test, you get sent for a drug test and
physical. Once you've passed the physical, they send you an invite for employment in which you must respond relatively fast.

Depends on whether you're hired for office work or shop floor work. For programming-specific office work, I'd expect to stay as a contractor for at least a year before being hired full time by the company itself.
