    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Rain Bird (Tucson, AZ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    My interview process was smooth and easy. It consisted of an initial interview with the hiring manager, another phone interview with another employee and a day of onsite interviews with senior leaders. Each interview felt more like a conversation than a standard interview which made it much more relaxed and comfortable. What I found most beneficial was the ability to talk with leaders from so many areas of the company. Each had views in relation to the role I was interviewing for and provided unique insight into the company.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Rain Bird in December 2013.

    Interview

    Quick response after I emailed my resume to HR. Phone interview felt like more a technical knowledge quizzing than going over my successes in sales and business development. I had the field expertise from chemical/petrochem/refining work but I think he really wanted someone from the Ag engrg end. Being an avid golfer who has played overseas and resides in an arid climate was not an advantage.
