    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at General Cigar.

    Interview

    Went through a recruiter. In persona interview with several company personal during a couple hours. They asked standard questions. Spent time talking about the position and company. Everyone I talked to seemed very friendly. The position itself seemed to fit the description they gave.

    A couple days later the recruiter sent me an offer they made. Unfortunately, I had to decline for personal reasons and nothing to do with the company itself.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing very unexpected. The interview process was pleasant and not stressful.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    They gave a solid offer but personal reasons prevented me from accepting.
