    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Barry Callebaut (Chicago, IL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Intense and long. It took over a month of interviews to get hired. I liked that I met with multiple department heads and discussed how my role would interact with their departments and staff. It was long and a bit arduous but I think it showed that they wanted me to be happy with my choice as much as them being happy with their pick to do the job.
