    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Whirlpool Corporation (Cleveland, TN).

    Interview

    The team lead chooses who they want to
    Interview. A panel Holds the interview and "grades" your answers according to how they think you answered. Answers do not have to be true. Just make it up. Advice given was to practice answering questions from a handbook given to me as my job experience and qualifications play a minor role in getting offered the job.

    Interview

    HR screening interview first, wait for about 2 weeks, then a phone interview from the hiring manager. HR interview asked questions about visa status, project preference, available time to start the job and the pay range for the position. The phone interview from the hiring managers asked questions mainly based on the resume. Get familiar with your own resume before the phone call will be fine. Get an onsite interview after about 2 weeks. I will set the answer to the following question to "Yes, and I accepted" to submit although I haven't finished the onsite interview yet.
