    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Vermilion Energy (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in November 2008.

    Interview

    Very thorough and lengthy. I don't think any of the interview process was redundant; however, the hiring process took too long. If I hadn't had my heart set on working there, I likely would have accepted another one of the offers I had.

    Negotiation

    It was a great offer. I accepted without negotiation.
