    Electrician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at USG in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through and one week later received a phone interview. Once this was done it was two weeks before my second call was made. This time they invited me to come in and meet the electrical maintenance team. The interview was with the local HR lady, the electrical foreman, and a technician. The interview was easy enough asking about my skills and background in electrical maintenance.
