    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Waste Connections (Old National Post Office, GA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Easy and quick. You feel comfortable and relaxed, they care for their employees. They had food and offered me some to eat. Most of the management came in and out during the interview an seemed to already made up their mind in the first 5 minutes. Each person's questions were targeted at their personal agenda and what they want to have you work on.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Waste Connections in June 2010.

    Interview

    1st a pre screen interview from the HR dept, 2nd quick phone interview form the hiring manager, 3rd 1:1 interview with the hiring manager and his manager, 4th drug screen and background check. All the 1:1 interviews were very informal, no prepared questions other than the when can you start, whats you exp.... the hiring manager did ask some very detailed technical questions simply to verify that i actually knew how to fix trucks. other wise it was more of a "meet n greet" get to know you session.

    Interview Questions

    • Please explain why you left your last job   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    very simple.... this is the wage you applied for and this it the only offer.
