Royalty Accountant Interview

Royalty Accountant

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at CONSOL Energy in November 2011.

Interview Details – Applied to Consol online. Heard back from them immediately and was set up for a phone interview. The phone interview consisted of mostly administrative questions that could have been easily found on my resume. After the phone interview I was asked to come in for an office interview. The atmosphere at the office was very relaxed. The interview was with two managers in the accounting department. They did most of the talking about the position and the history of the company. I was asked to describe the highlights of my previous work experience and what relevant skills I had. After the managers left I had a closing interview with HR that essentially asked the same questions as were asked in the phone interview.

Interview Question – What do you know about the history of Consol?   Answer Question

The process took a day - interviewed at CONSOL Energy in July 2010.

Interview Details – Very informail interview. Not enough structure. The hiring manager did not have a list of questions to ask and jumped about from topic to topic. The HR representative ran a much more professional, while still friendly, interview.

Interview Question – How many gas stations do you think there are in the United States?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Did not negiotiate, but probably could have.
