    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Orica in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had a couple of phone interviews with HR and the person who would have been my boss. Both went pretty well. I was then scheduled for an interview with the manager above him, and being out of state they scheduled another phone interview. I never got a call. The HR rep apologized but gave no explanation and did not reschedule.
