Very Easy Interview

Corporate Development Director Interview

Corporate Development Director
Overland Park, KS

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Compass Minerals in November 2013.

Interview Details – I had a phone screen with HR which went great. I was invited to come in for a meeting with the Sr. Vps which I would report. When I arrived, it was another meeting with HR which repeated the phone screen. That also went well and they told me they would set up the meeting with the VPs, but then they refused to return my calls. As it turned out, they did not want to pay a recruiting fee and the outside recruiter sent in a dud before me. So HR was hesitant to review any more candidates from the recruiter.

Interview Question – Just basic interview questions.   Answer Question
