- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rio Grande (Albuquerque, NM) in June 2015.
First they do a background check and run you through two antiquated assessments meant to figure out if you are trustworthy and if you will fit their open/no manager/team-based culture. I will give more details on the 2 quizzes below but maybe they were high-tech 15 years ago, it wants you to use at least IE6 I think so, yeah, low tech, old school. They were pretty disorganized, I got a call a few days after I submitted my resume online and was told I would be contacted by HR the next day. Several days went by, I called back and somehow there was an issue so the had to re-do things and I finally got an email to allow a background check and take the assessments online. After I took them I got an email saying they found a better candidate...which means I failed one or both of the assessments (see below) since the job was re-posted a couple weeks later. Then the next week they emailed me the exact same message. Seems like they are not very organized and like weird management styles and antiquated assessments.
- Trust/Character Assessment... Similar questions asked in slightly different ways: Do you think it is ok to drink on the job, if you were caught stealing would you turn others in, if I just take a little item from work it is ok, etc... 1 Answer
- Personality Assessment... questions trying to figure out if you are in introvert, extrovert, team player, loaner, etc... They say there are no wrong answers just answer truthfully. 1 Answer

Helpful (1)Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Rio Grande (Albuquerque, NM).
Response to resume took about 6 months, required a personality test. Multiple long interviews with a surprisingly large group of people. Seemed like everyone felt like they had to ask a question, but weren't necessarily prepared, so most questions were not substantive.
- Most questions were softballs: "Do you like working with others?", "How do you handle things when you have a different opinion than someone you're working with?" Answer Question
Yes, negotiated somewhat
- No OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Rio Grande (Albuquerque, NM) in March 2010.
Initial communication with HR and front office was positive. HR blew me off when I asked to discuss multiple positions open, but I completed the assessments. Rather than calling me in for an interview they indicated that I wasn't a good fit, without any detail.
