    Diamond Grader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Gemological Institute of America (New York, NY) in June 2015.


    I applied online through GIA's website and got an internet interview immediately. One week later I got an email for onsite interview. The first interview is more like a meeting than an interview because basically all the candidates were just sitting in the conference room and listening to HR to introduce GIA and the diamond grader position. The real in person interview happened in the week after that and I did went there because HR said they don't sponsorship H1B visa for that position.
