    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Abengoa Bioenergy in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process took a long time. My first interview was in September and I was hired in January. I first interviewed locally with the head of HR for the US and a plant manager. Then I was interviewed at St. Louis corporate with two executive VPs and another VP. Then I was interviewed locally by a member of the management team from a company that is in a joint venture and finally I interviewed at DC corporate with the CEO, another EVP and a VP. I received notice within 24 hrs I would be getting an offer. Getting the offer and the start date were three weeks apart.
