    I worked at De Beers Group full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay. I had nice coworkers who understood their jobs and what was expected of them.

    Cons

    Long hours and bad location. Job insecurity. Poor equipment and technology to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, show up once in a while. Everyone would be much happier with better communication.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at De Beers Group.

    Interview

    Two interviews over skype. Interview was all behavioural based questions. Never followed up after interview or returned phone calls inquiring about application status. One of the employees interviewing during the second round was quite rude and kept on interrupting mid question. Was not impressed with how the interview process was handled.

    Interview Questions

    • Your boss asks you to use a data set that you know how is out of date but insists that you use it, how do you handle this?   Answer Question
    • What would you do if a fellow co worker was not following proper safety protocols?   Answer Question
