    Welder Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lower Colorado River Authority (Austin, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and was selected for an in-person interview. I think the time frame from submission to interview was about two weeks. The panel was easy to talk with. They asked garden variety questions regarding my experience and certifications. Unfortunately, HR will not contact you to give you any feedback regarding your interview or if you did/did not get the job. I would say that’s what tainted my experience. Why not show a little more interest in your prospective employees and answer the questions they may have?

TWO MONTHS after not hearing anything from them I see that a class mate of mine had accepted the position on Linkedin.
