    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cytec.

    Interview

    Applied for the position directly via their web site and heard nothing. 6 months later, I was called by a recruiter for the same position and did a phone interview screen. My first in-person interview did not include anyone from HR but did include 3 other relevant interviewers who were relevant. In the second round of interviews, I met the HR business partner for my area and he had zero soft-side skills. This was a red flag for an HR guy in this type of area.

    Negotiation
