    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Yara in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Headhunter called me if I am interested in to work for the Company.
    I've been seeking, so I asked for more details.
    I've submitted my CV and very soon I received a phone call to agree in the time of phone interview.
    During the phone interview they've asked me about my previous jobs, positions and tasks.
    Because I fit perfectly to the open position there were not so many questions, but they've invited me for a personal interview as well.
    On the personal interview I had some kind of technical tests, to verify my competency and because I had the right answers for all the questions, they've asked me when can I start.
