    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Worth, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Quicksilver Resources (Fort Worth, TX) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Multiple interviewers made the interview process challenging. Had it been made known upfront that multiple managers would interview, then it would have been ok. It's too intimidating to walk into a room with 4 people sitting at the table and all firing questions at you.
