    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Kinross Gold.

    Interview

    It was good. The phone interview was about 30 min. Basic questions were answered. They were really nice and easy going. Just be truthful and honest. It is nerve racking to be on the phone because you can't tell if they are interested because you can't see them.

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate anything.

    Supply Chain Superintendent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Republic, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kinross Gold (Republic, WA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    I was first interviewed over the phone. That went very well. The company then wanted to fly me to Washington from my home in Arizona. They also wanted my wife to come to take a look at the area. We flew to Washington and then I attend a two day in depth interview, which also went well, mostly because I was very prepared and had the experience they were looking for.

    Interview Questions

    • How have you handled a difficult employee in the past? (be a specific as possible)   Answer Question
    • Describe you most difficult manager. Explain why they were difficult and what you did to function and get along with them.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate, but I unfortunately only focused on my relocation and salary. I know now that I could have negotiated on my vacation time as well.
    I would suggest to anyone applying and negotiating with Kinross to also negotiate their vacation time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Kinross Gold.

    Interview

    First part was a phone interview conducted by HR, then the second step was going in for a scheduled face to face interview with two department managers. Asked a lot of behavioural and situational questions, but very few technical questions (which really surprised me). I got the feeling that they really work their summer interns hard. I had a competing offer and chose to go with that instead.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Kinross Gold in March 2013.

    Interview

    Online application followed by phone interview that was more of a conversation than an interview. Was previously employed so process was shorter and simpler. HR didn't like the fact people applied to multiple positions (like I did). In fact they said they ignored people that did (except me, I guess?).
