    Field Geologist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Colorado Springs, CO
    Anonymous Employee in Colorado Springs, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Terracon in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview completed via phone. The interviewers seemed okay, but uninterested and bored throughout the interview process. Asked standard questions at first. What job experience do you have, what classes did you take at your university, can you withstand rough conditions such as cold weather, rugged terrain, being able to lift 50 pounds, etc. Then they moved to more odd questions, such as, if I could instantaneously move instead of commuting 100 miles each day (after I told them I was more than willing to make the drive for this job). They continued to pry and ask why I wouldn't move and then tried to persuade me to move by saying my apartment complex would allow me to without having to pay to break my lease. It felt almost like if I declined to move, they weren't going to offer me the position; which they never followed up with me after saying they would once the interview was complete.
