    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Morton Salt.

    Interview Details

    Morton Salt interviewed at my college and also put on an interview prep class which I attended. I originally was not scheduled for an interview, but was desperate for a job and went to the prep class. I came early and spoke to the instructor who was also the HR Manager for the corporation. It turned out he was an old coal miner and I had just finished my co-op at a mine in West Virginia. We hit it off and he offered me an interview on the spot. I had no idea salt even came from underground mines. Previous experience, a degree, and willingness to learn are very important to engineering positions at Morton Salt.

    New hires out of school, at that time, had no chance of negotiation. I believe this still holds true. Morton is pretty set in their ways.

    Financial Services Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 1 week - interviewed at Morton Salt in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The majority of the communication that took place was between HR and myself in which a phone interview was conducted. It was not very job specific but was offered to come in for a one on one interview with the hiring manager. I came in the following week and was not there very long at all. The interview with the hiring manager was very simple and easy and an interview like no other I have experienced before. The hiring manager informed me in the beginning that she was new to the process of interviewing or it had been a long time; she seemed nervous and barely asked me any questions. To my surprise, HR called me later that week offering me the job.

    The offer was an offer I did not feel needed to be negotiated. They do compensate fairly and are generous.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Morton Salt in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    applied online for the role. the was never a phone screener just communication via email that led to the in person interview at the downtown chicago office. met with the finance manager and finance director for the group. they were in a rush as it was during the month in close process. it was a group interview where the finance manager was nice and welcoming but the director was distinctly cold and unfriendly. they asked about my background and the director consistently questioned my intelligence rolled his eyes crossed his arms and so on. completely unprofessional. of course we never spoke again. the one thing i learned is the benefit a phone interviews from the candidate side. had i spoken to the hiring personel i could've potentially saved a PTO day that i wasted on this mess

    The process took 3 months - interviewed at Morton Salt in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview then brought out to site for an interview with 3 managers/ upper employees. Final 1:1 interview. The interview was your basic tell a time you succeeded and so on and why do you want to work here. They were very slow at responding and after the 3rd interview did not respond to calls or emails for over 1 month which was disappointing..
