I interviewed at Sonoco Products

Interview

Was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn and asked if I would be interested in the position. Went through 3 rounds of interviews, and then was ghosted. Never a positive experience being ghosted by a company that you went through a few interviews with. A decline email is better than nothing.

Interview Questions
  • Basic questions and how your experience relates to the position.
