    I applied online. I interviewed at Sandvik (Gainesville, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview conducted by a temp agency. General application for employment submitted. Followed be resume submission. The contact period was roughly one week in time.

    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sandvik (Fair Lawn, NJ) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Too much testing Not very welcoming and friendly. When I arrived for in-person interview people were arrogant and seemed disorganized and unprofessional. HR very young. No consistent process and no clear next steps given to me. I did get an offer but they never gave me any clear job description. Treated me like a child and overly concerned abount tests and how you do on the testing really determines whether you will get an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sandvik (Milford, CT).

    Interview

    Very laid back interview, mostly just general conversation. Not all interviews will be this way though, it depends what department you are going into. They hire through temp agencies for 99% of the positions. If you know someone that works there its pretty much a guarantee that you would have a job.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions asked to me though I suppose it depends on who you are going to interview with. Some managers are way more serious and others are laughable.   Answer Question
