    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Rosendin Electric (Hillsboro, OR) in June 2017.


    Applied online. Received an email about 2 weeks later to set up a phone interview. Phone interview seemed like it went fine. Was told decisions would be made for in person interviews within a week or so. I followed up 10 days later by email. Was advised to check back towards the end of July. I followup up near the end of July and received a response saying everything has been put on hold and if a job comes up that I am a good fit for, I will be contacted.
