    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Barrick Goldstrike.

    Interview Details

    Met a recruiter at a career fair on the university's campus. Barrick was holding mock-interviews in preparation for full interviews the following day.

    The interview was performed by a recruiter and lasted about 75 minutes. It was mostly behavioral. They asked why I'd chosen my major and why I wanted to work at the mines. A few safety and personality questions were mixed with the typical previous experience inquiries.

    The overall feeling was extremely amicable and professional. The interviewer was personable and friendly.

    Project Controls Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Barrick Goldstrike in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call to see if I was still interested/available for the position and to set up a time for a phone interview with a group (two managers and HR employee). Phone interview was set up for the next day. Interview began with a more detailed description of the job requirements and general duties. Initial questions were geared toward how I would feel about the job, analysis of my resume, etc. Further in, however, the questions were scenario situations with vague direction. I could tell they were looking for specific answers, but the questions were so general it was very hit and miss. (Also note this is an entry level position straight out of college).

    Overall it was a difficult interview, partly because of scenario questions where I really felt each answer should be "It depends on the circumstances." but also because the interview was conducted via conference call & speaker phone so it was sometimes difficult to hear everything.
