    I worked at Sandvik full-time

    Pros

    The VP was always getting involved in safety issues. He would get involved personally and talk with all people involved even if it was a minor incident. I found him to be sincere in making sure that the people he=ad the proper tools and received the right training to not just reduce but to eliminate accidents/

    Cons

    The company is very cyclical based on mining needs so we worked all the time for years and then we would be lucky to keep people busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and try to figure out how to work through the rough times

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Sandvik.

    Interview Details

    Very laid back interview, mostly just general conversation. Not all interviews will be this way though, it depends what department you are going into. They hire through temp agencies for 99% of the positions. If you know someone that works there its pretty much a guarantee that you would have a job.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions asked to me though I suppose it depends on who you are going to interview with. Some managers are way more serious and others are laughable.   Answer Question
