    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Koch Industries (Reno, NV) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview took place in two parts: 1) a phone interview with a recruiting specialist in Wichita, and 2) a three part in-person interview at the Reno, NV office. The first interview was a generic personality/work ethic interview with questions such as "what is your greatest strength/weakness". The phone interview lasted about 30-40 minutes. The second round of interviews included an interview with the following positions: 1) an hour long in-person interview with the director of strategy/Reno office manager, 2) a 30 minute skype interview with a manager in the I.T. department in Wichita, and 3) a 30 minute skype interview with the manager of the cloud architecture department. Overall, the interviews were focused upon your fit in their culture and your previous experience.

    Interview

    Applied using the web and on their site; basically the same day the job was posted. I not only met, but exceeded all requirements. Never got call back, but a thank you letter after 5 days that I was not selected. I wonder how diversity looks like in there...? Not even a phone screen!

    Interview

    Standard questions, interviewer was not personable at all and seemed disinterested from the beginning. After asking around a bit I learned that it is actually currently more difficult to get a job as a man; Koch is attempting to diversify and are intentionally hiring more women now. Heard back via email after a few days.
