Step 5 – Should you be deemed a good fit for the company you will be invited for an interview.

Note: It’s important to confirm the date/time/location of your interview with the manager. Although not required, it might be useful to bring a long a resume to the interview. Arrive five minutes early for good measure. If you are offered the job, your employment hinges on the successful completion of a criminal background check and drug test.
