    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Central Garden & Pet (Neptune, NJ (US)) in July-2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process I think they did a great job, they did background check and did a urine sample. This helps me know that my coworkers are reliable and a safe work environment
