I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Newmont Mining in October 2013.
Interview Details – When they visited my college, I submitted my resume. Upon reviewing my resume, they called me back for the initial interview the day after the Career Fair. Later, they informed me that they wanted to do a second phone interview. After the phone interview (2-3 weeks) they called me back with an offer.

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 a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Newmont Mining in July 2012.
Interview Details –
Initially I was contacted by an in-house recruiter. I had a phone interview with an HR person which went very well. She gave me good insights on pay, benefits and we talked about my experience.
I was called back for an in-person interview which went really well. Then after 2 weeks got another call to meet with two other people. I felt that went really well too. A few more weeks went by and I called but they were still working on a decision. Two days later they told me they thought I was a great fit and everyone liked me but they went with someone internally. I was a bit heartbroken but totally understand.
Interview Question – What experience do you have with crisis management? 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 Question – What did you make at your two most recent positions? View Answer
Reason for Declining – The HR lady was very hard core and unwilling to bend on salary. They wanted me to work a rotating swing shift and non-standard work week. They offered me a 15-20k pay cut from my contract salary to go perm and said their benefits and bonus would make up for it. Bonuses are not guaranteed money. The recruiter I worked with said it was way out of character for them to act the way they did and that normally the offer going to perm is the same or better than the contract rate. Newmont was having a hard time finding people to staff this position. Now I know why.
The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Newmont Mining in September 2011.
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
The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Newmont Mining in May 2011.
Interview Details – Everyone seemed real nice, but you are not exposed to the same people you will encounter on a daily basis, even though they are the same person. Remember, the position you are interviewing for is open because somebody likely left the company. You will understand why if you let yourself be misled by the people conducting the interview. They will promise that the position is a great opportunity, and go over a list of expectations, but your actual job duties will be much different, and most likely be different than the job title and expectations suggest. Business Administrator=receptionist, but they will lead you to believe that you will have a significant job. It will be challenging, but it is not the challenge you were expecting when it comes to actually working there. The business culture is unprofessional unless MSHA or corporate is in town. The interview was as misleading as the job announcement.
Interview Question – What are your hobbies (a difficult question to answer without being sarcastic if you are a single working mom and they know that)? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Take it or leave it. You have no bargaining power, and they will simply reject any offer you might advance anyway because they know they can hire someone else. I get a sense a lot of new employees are hired for being attractive. I did not like the take it or leave it position they fostered, but in retrospect, I wish I would have left it, and I would have had they been transparent on what the position actually was.

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.
