      Average Interview

      I applied online. The process took 4 months. I interviewed at Kennametal (Latrobe, PA)


      Very lengthy, started with phone interview. Then followed by in person, then second interview with 4 people that was 4 hours long. The second interview was very long but you were able to learn more information about the company from each person that interviewed you.

      I had to give a detailed overview about my job experiences starting with college.
