The process took 1 week - interviewed at Marcolin in August 2008.

Company was looking for an Italian native with financial leadership background. 2nd phone interview (I was in Italy on vacation at the time) with head of HR. General interview questions: background, leadership style, accomplishments, etc. Third interview with CEO: specific questions on financial analysis & strategic development background and future plans.
While the interview was positive and I was among the final 2 candidates, I was not chosen as they preferred someone with previous work experience in the USA, which at that point I did not have.
