    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kirby Corporation (Houston, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was great, and the lady who interviewed me was very nice. I was contacted and did an over the phone interview, since I was in Brazil at the time. I was asked general questions such as what position would you like in the company, where do you see your self going with with your career, and what attracts you about the company. The person who I spoke with was very knowledgeable about what she was doing, and was very good at answering my questions. Overall I had a great experience.
