    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at American Water (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with behavioral question. Follow interview with manager, and more behavioral questions. The manager didn't care for something I said, she went from laughter to un-pleasant within one question. She then told me she would decide later and would get a call later that day, I never heard from them again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Water (Cherry Hill, NJ) in March 2015.

    Interview

    first interview was via phone. next stage was a half day of interviews with multiple people. all went well or so it seemed. i followed up with the recruiter who got me in front of the company and then never heard another peep. I followed up with each individual that I interviewed with and still received no reply. not even a courtesy reply via email. not very professional in my estimation. I believe the recruiter had everything to do with me not getting the job, if it was given at all, nor being replied to. I will review her recruiting business and have more to say about Kathleen.
