    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at CALIBRE Systems in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my Resume after an email was sent expressing interest in me, That was on a Tuesday, I interviewed on Friday. The interview was about an hour long in front of six men each with a sheet of questions to answer. They explained there benefits package and gave me a packet explaining it all. We discussed Salary and I was given what I asked for. Ten days later I was offered the job by the HR rep. Later that day I received a call from the V.P. of Logistics to officially accept the job. I was quickly emailed four documents, An offer letter, security clearance form, another benefits packet and a welcome letter. I filled out the offer letter and security form and faxed back to them right away. While on the phone for my official offer I was informed my start date would be six week later that was a bit of a surprise. I was called by my new supervisor after two weeks to come in and be fitted for uniforms and take a tour of the facility.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at CALIBRE Systems in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    One interview, it was fairly informal. I was contacted by a company subsidiary and asked to come in. i was interviewed by their president. I was offered the job on the spot. I do not believe this is how that interview process works within the corporate offices. From the first call to the offer the whole process took about 5 days.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at CALIBRE Systems.

    Interview Details

    I was recommended for a senior analyst position by a former co-worker from an overseas assignment. A telephonic interview was scheduled, as I was still working abroad and was told that it would be a three step process. I was initially interviewed by several more experienced analysts and a database administrator. They provided me with several scenarios that called for me to explain actions that I would take to respond to customer requests for data from authoritative data sources. I was expected to detailed the most expedient method to pull the needed data and what I would use to present it in a user friendly format. I was then interviewed by several logistics services professionals. This group of individuals gauged my ability to interpet the data and recommend actions to alleviate negative impacts to customer wait time and other logistical jams. Once my responses were deemed satifsfactory, I was recommended for candidacy to fill the open position. My final interview was conducted by a VP, who negotiated my full compensation package expectations as well as my initial reporting requirements.
