    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Newmont Mining (Winnemucca, NV) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I received a call from one of the hr representatives at Newmont in Nevada for an online video interview with the team of engineers. They set up a video interview 3 weeks after the call. During the interview they asked me the most ridiculous questions that were unrelated to the position I was being interviewed for. Not once did they mention anything related about the job position or what kind of skills I have that is engineering related. It was all negative questions regarding the worst situations I have encountered on the job in my previous working positions. The interview process for jobs these days is unbelievable, since when do people act like psychologists? Job interviews are suppose to be questions regarding the job details outlined and if I am qualified to carry out the operations.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Newmont Mining.

    Interview

    I applied online and a week or two later was contacted to have a video chat interview with the group I'd be working with. After the interview I didn't hear back from them for nearly a month and a half, but they finally contacted me saying they wanted to fly me out for a few days to do an onsite interview. The interview itself was fine and the people in the group were all lovely, but the HR staff is HORRIFIC.

    They won't contact you with crucial information (I had to call them myself the afternoon before my flight because they told me they would email me my flight and hotel information and at 2pm the day before leaving I still hadn't received anything) and they're incredibly unprofessional. Before I flew back home I was told HR would contact me to say whether or not I had been offered the position some time within the next few weeks. After almost a month of waiting for a response I decided to email them, I got a response saying that I hadn't contact the correct HR person (there were two that I had been dealing with over the course of applying) so they would forward my email to the person on my account and she would contact me as soon as possible. To make sure I actually got ahold of her I sent an email as well.

    After all I've experienced with the HR people, it shouldn't have surprised me that she never responded. It's 6 months later and for all I know, they could still be deliberating on whether or not I should get the position because no one ever bothered to tell me I hadn't been hired.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical behavioral questions. They also asked me technical questions relating to the processes they do like "why would we add activated carbon to the process?"   Answer Question
