    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Aluminum (Trentwood, WA).

    Interview

    Phone interview with hiring manager. Days later a round robin interview. Meet all 3 in a conference and proceed to meet each one whereby behavioral questions and possible related skills are discussed.

    Posting asked for certain skills (posting and hiring manager) said were required, while actual floor manager stated skills were barely used or certain analytical skills were not important. An apparent disconnect between upper management and the floor leading to some confusion for the interviewee.

    Interviewers polite and professional.

    Negative review is for unprofessional communication. Hours of interviewing (on-site) and no word back after thank you letters and follow ups. "Ghosting" as it is called with no rejection or acceptance after days of preparation and research on the company for the interview.
