    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Okonite in May 2011.

    Interview

    All hiring is done through a recruiter. Very simple, had an interview lined up within 4 hours of finding out about the job. Met with mid level management. Very informal. I felt like I was interviewing them, barely any questions about my background. I was very bored during the interview but felt it my duty to continue on. Went to corporate HQ the next day. Met with senior management. Got a good feeling that they wanted me and would take care of me.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe your past experiences and how it would relate to the present job   Answer Question
    • They kept asking me questions about my lack of experience   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation salary wise, I didn't really try either. They made a decent offer that really, in my eyes, wasn't worth fussing over. They were flexible with my start dates. Unfortunately everything went through the recruiter, would have been nice to talk directly with management but they freely admit they don't like the hiring process.
