    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Compass Minerals (Overland Park, KS) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone screening with member from HR. I advanced to next stage and had a phone interview with the hiring manager for the position. I then was told I had advanced to the in-person stage. I traveled out for an in-person interview and everything went great. I met with four to five individuals, all of whom gave positive feedback. I returned home and got a call four to five days later saying the position had been put on hold and did not meet the business needs at this time.
