    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kennametal.

    Interview

    Went through two phone interviews was told they would schedule an interview with the hiring manager only to receive an automated rejection over that same weekend. Then when reached out to verify since I was told I made it through to the next round I got radio silence. Never heard from the HR rep again. I found that a little unprofessional.

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Kennametal in March 2016.

    Two phone calls, one with manager and one with a director. Very laid back and conversational. Interview with manager was slightly more laid back than director. Told of second interview during first interview, after second interview it was about 2 weeks before receiving an offer. HR was very slow during the process although the managers and directors were quick and responsive.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kennametal (Fort Mill, SC) in May 2015.

    Contacted by phone and scheduled for a 2hr in person interview.

First I interviewd with the hiring manager and her boss. General interview questions I.e. Tell me about yourself, give me examples of this..etc no really hard questions
    They gave me a lot of onfo on the company. I pretty much went over the same exact thing with all 4 interviewers just at different times.
