    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Molycorp (Henderson, NV) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was easy and quick. There were many general foreman on hand to conduct interviews. Many of the questions were based on previous experience and situations. Interviewers were extremely attentive and took great notes on my personality.
