    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at DET Norske Veritas in December 2014.

    Interview

    Conctacted 3 weeks after applying for phone interview with HR. Easy questions, a few technical things. Contacted for second interview after 2 weeks with Director of Wind Energy team. To my surprise there were no technical questions, and interview was more HR oriented than the first interview with HR (questions like Pros, Cons, why work with us etc.). Felt like the interviewer was reading a script and there was no sense of conversation. Next day I received an e-mail that I was not considered for the position.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions, just not technical at all. Do not understand how they made decision for candidate.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at DET Norske Veritas (Seattle, WA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at DET Norske Veritas (Stavanger (Norway)).

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. It was a budget thing. I gave them the benefit of the doubt.
