    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Rio Tinto full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A good place to work and learn. The global reach from a small business unit allows for a lot of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Headwinds are on the horizon with increasing competition and overall commodity slowdown. However, this business unit should fare better than the overall commodity sector.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Rio Tinto.

    Interview

    I was presented by an outside recruiter. The interview was a 6 person panel. All the panel members were pleasant and professional. The process took about 4 weeks before an offer was made. The background check and physical were extensive. The physical took about 2 hours and was a bit excessive for an office position.

    Interview Questions

    • Trying to understand some of the technical mining jargon that was used in some of the questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very easy negotiations.
