    Electrician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sebree, KY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Century Aluminum (Sebree, KY) in January 2015.


    very thorough background check, with round table style interview and skills verification. They use a standardized question format divided up among the various interviewers. The interview is conducted by HR, and the management staff (all of them) of the individual departments. The health and fitness testing is the hardest part of the process. If they intend to offer you a position you will know before leaving the premises
