    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at DET Norske Veritas in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted for a phone interview about 2 weeks after applying to the job posting online. I spoke on the phone with a manager who was very friendly and informative. I was flown out for an interview in person 3 days later. I first met with an HR person who was again very informative and friendly. The company has all sorts of programs to promote healthy living, sustainability, etc. I was then toured around the office and met one-on-one with a manager followed by several group interviews with members of the team. They were interested in learning about my related experience but equally as interested in getting to know me as a person. The entire experience was extremely comfortable and friendly. It seems like an excellent place to work.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at DET Norske Veritas.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial interview that went on for 2 hours. The interviewers are very nice and polite. They make me feel like they want to know me more as a person and we more of a conversation than an interview. After passing the first interview, I was to take a logic test and a personality test plus a second interview, which also lasted for 2 hours. The offer was below my requested but I decided that I like the team and culture enough to accept.

    Interview Questions
    • There wasn't any as everything felt natural. But in the middle of the two long interviews, I was so drained, my brain became blank and I wasn't sure I know what I was talking about. Luckily they overlooked my rambling period.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. It was a budget thing. I gave them the benefit of the doubt.
