    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lafarge.

    Interview

    It was a long interview process because many of the folks on the panel were remote. I believe I had 4 phone interviews with various HR and hiring managers, and 2 face to face in the same day with the team leader and another HR member. However once the interviews were complete, the offer and hiring process went quickly.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me several times about my work history and how my past fit into the role I was applying for.   1 Answer
