    Application

    I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Waste Connections (United States)

    Interview

    I had two rounds of interviews. 1st round with HR and 2nd round with the team. They were chill and friendly. General BQ questions, conversational. I could tell they're actually trying to get to know you as a person.
