    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kao Corporation.

    Interview

    I emailed my resume to an employee (employee referral) and with in a few days I was contacted by HR and invited to come to their Cincinnati headquarters. I had three very conversational interviews. One was with HR and the other two were with the accounting managers. If you know your resume and are able to talk about yourself naturally you should have no issues with the interview.
