Interview

Fairly normal process. Was interviewed over phone twice then in person once. Did not receive an offer beyond that. Was disappointed because it seemed like a great company to work for with a great atmosphere and really nice people to work with.

    Interview

    I had responded to their ad on a job site and they called me after 2 months.I had the first interview with the country manager who seemed to be a great guy , most of the time he was talking explaining the job in detail.He tried to "sell" me 3M and the fact that they hire during the country's greatest financial crisis.3 weeks later I had the second interview with the sales director.Very kind and very friendly , too.We had a fruitful discussion and he told me that if I qualify I will have a third interview in english with the foreign No 1 , the general manager.But 3 weeks later they sent me an e-mail stating that they decided to proceed with another candidate.On the whole, a very good experience and I'd like to work for them in the future
