    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Oerlikon (Munich, Bavaria) in Mar 2022


    Fast and informative interview for a Recruiter role in Germany. Sounds like a good team to work for and I would consider applying again, but I had already accepted another offer. I still attended because I wanted know more about the company and the Team.

    Details about my recruiting experience and process knowledge.
