    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Orica (Watkins, CO) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Interview with HR, hiring manager and VP. One hour spent with HR and the hiring manager and one hour spent with the VP on the first interview. Second interview was one hour with the senior HR, the hiring manager and another senior person

    Interview Questions

    • Basic finance questions, but the HR guy seems disinterested like he had something else to do and talked about himself a little too much about himself   1 Answer
