    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Clarksville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Nyrstar (Clarksville, TN) in June 2009.

    Interview

    This was the easiest interview I ever went on. Talked to three people separately maybe. Very easy. But they took so long to offer I had completely forgot about them....

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I negotiated extra vacation should of negotiated more pay, they will be desperate for a good engineer in the future, they have none on staff now and will need somebody to do the sticky gooey hard jobs successfully in the near future...
