    Staff Development Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Potashcorp (Washington, DC) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume directly through the PotashCorp website. Within two weeks I was called for a phone interview. The phone interview took place with supervisor over the position, not HR. I liked this because it gave me the opportunity to see if the person on the other end of the line seemed like someone with whom I'd want to work. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and was very standard- I was told about the position and told the interviewer a little about my qualifications. I was contacted the next day by the HR department and asked to come in for a face-to-face interview. I was asked to complete the PotashCorp standard application, to prepare a 10-15 minute PowerPoint presentation about myself to present to a panel of interviewers during the face-to-face interview, and given instructions on when to arrive for the interview. From the moment I stepped onto the grounds, I was greeted warmly by all staff with whom I came in contact. The interview began with my presentation which was followed by the HR manager and supervisor over the position taking me through a "Behavioral" style interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral style, typically beginning with "Tell me about a time when you experienced...". The questions were all very pertinent to the position and straight forward. I didn't feel they asked me anything that didn't fit the job or that was difficult to answer.   Answer Question
