Interview Details I spoke with an employee at a campus career fair and got an email the next day to have an on campus interview. The interview was very relaxed and not intimidating. It was more of a conversation and most of the questions were resume and behavioral. I got an email a few days after inviting me to the regional interview day in York, Pa. The event was fun and we got to tour the plant and meet more people at a dinner event. There were a series of two interviews which were also behavioral and resume based. Fun group of people but you have to make sure you are suited for a manufacturing type job and are prepared to spend time inside the plant.
