    Senior Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dyno Nobel (Salt Lake City, UT) in July 2016.


    Several phone interviews followed by long periods of no activity. Interviewed with several of the Sr. Management group via phone. All were very cordial and the process was acceptable but did take longer than I thought was necessary.
