    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Harsco.

    Interview

    Very shallow and HR department not knowledgeable. They don't have quality or knowledge which in turn makes it difficult for them to know what to look for. I would not recommend this place nor would I say it is a good place to work.
