I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Newmont Mining in September 2012.
Interview Details – Most interesting part was that they had me put together a slide presentation about myself, explaining why I'd be good at the job. I thought that was clever way to do it.
Interview Question – Questions weren't that hard. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Newmont Mining in April 2012.
Interview Details – There were two days of interviews. The first day was a half hour meeting at the company headquarters with three people from different sections. They basically just asked about my experience, why I chose my graduate degree, what my career interests are. The second round didn't take place for another month. I had a series of one on one interviews with various members of the internal audit section. This one was a little more in-depth about why I wanted to work for Newmont, my career aspirations, and my skills set. One thing that stuck out to me was that all but one of the five people I met with was brought on board the company by a mentor who came to work there. Seems like you won't get a job if you don't know someone in the company who's willing to sponsor you.

Interview Details –
Worst HR screener I have ever encountered:
- Did not call during the scheduled meeting time and indicated that "my PC crashed".
- When I rescheduled the call, HR phoned me an hour early and asked for a different interview candidate.
- Told me "this interview is over unless you provide me with your salary info"
- After the interview, called the wrong person to let me know about the opportunity.
Reason for Declining – HR was inept. Speaks volumes about the organization
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Newmont Mining in March 2010.
Interview Details – Initial communication was through email. I was asked to come in and speak with a rep. They asked me several basic questions about my experience, my goals, and my financial acumen. There were no quantitative exams or technical evaluations. Overall it was a good experience and I look forward to hearing back.
