I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Clean Harbors (Boston, MA) in Aug 2022

Interview

Wasn’t a great interview process. Went through two interviews and they ghosted me after the second - no feedback, no call. Know someone else who interviewed and they said they felt like they were only a diversity interview and the ghosting happened to them, too. They seem extremely unprofessional.
