    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Magna International.

    Interview

    Interview process was conducted in professional and valid manner. HR manager, Project Manager, and Plant Manger conducted the interview together. Multiple interviewers allowed for a less biased interview and a more valid assessment of my skills and abilities. The interview itself lasted around 30-45 minutes followed by a 1.5 hour tour of the manufacturing plant.

    Reasons for Declining

    I felt that the offer was low considering my education level. The offer was a fair offer considering my experience level (below average) but the company was unwilling to negotiate further with regards to salary.
