    panel interview with 3 warehouse workers and HR representative. First the HR rep asks a series of questions, than the supervisor asks their series of questions.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Molycorp (Mountain Pass, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Recruiter found my resume online. He emailed the job description and after I looked it over, wishing to apply, he asked me several times, "are you sure that you and your family are up to relocating to a different state"?
    1st interview was over the phone and lasted approximately 20 minutes.
    2nd interview I drove out to Las Vegas, stayed the night (Molycorp paid for/ reimbursed me everything). In the morning met with my future supervisor and Maintenance Manager. Interviews lasted about 20-30 minutes each. Had a brief tour of the plant, only because I also interviewed with the Shift Leader with whom I would be closely working with.

    If being considered for a position at MolyCorp, you must apply online, take an EEI test which includes, math(fractions, next number sequencing, pythagorean therom, a reading aptitute test, an analytical comprehension test that includes watching an animated video of coffee mugs being produced and then questions about issues in the production line must be answered. Also there is a test for mechanical appitude which includes pully calculations, leverage problems, rigging quesitons(fastners, anchors and overhead pully weight). The interview process is different from any other companies, they bring 6-8 people into a conference room, 4 MolyCorp employees ask a series of questions asking you to discribe a certain situation and how you would handle it. Every candidate answers the same quesiton all around the table, each time they start with a different candidate. After 16 questions in relation to a industrial mining operation, mixing, chemicals, lifting, safety and water treatment, they ask questions about theft of company property, how you deal with difficult co workers who are not pulling their load. When your done they walk you out and say they will call with an update on the position. I recieved a call 20 days after interviewing, stating that they were interested in me, however they didnt currently have a position open for me.

    Interview

    Technical presentation on the project during Phd. All of the department members were there. No questions asked during the presentation though. After that 1 on 1 interview with the boss. Basically I find that the requirement that they want is very different as compared to what I do. I have told the recruiter about this, yet the recruiter insist that I should come to the interview.
