    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Covanta.

    Interview

    TOOK 5 MIN, very unprofessional, seemed to be very laid back almost joke like people interrupting, HR woman who is there admin sectary thought she was a manager or something and was just someone who answers the phone. Called back quickly, followed by typical background check and drug test. Don't worry about background check they have felons working there that have shot people. Placed is filled with a lot of unprofessional unqualified employs and can see why due to there hiring process.

    Senior Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Covanta.

    Interview

    Applied online. Contacted in about a week for a phone screen with HR. After which I was asked to come in for an interview and meet with 3-4 people. Covanta called day before the interview to reschedule. Not an issue except I had another interview that I had to postpone since I had that day reserved for Covanta. HR called me several times saying they needed to reschedule and due to trying to time 4 different employee's schedule it was tough. OK, I understand but I've scheduled meetings with multiple parties before it shouldn't be that difficult. A week later I send an email and get a reply "we're still trying". I gave up on Covanta and moved on. Three weeks later I get the form letter/email... "Sorry, but..." Very amateurish.
