    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yara (Porsgrunn (Norway)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by phone, with the Recruiter who asked basic questions (such as, my norwegian level, my notice period, if I was willing to relocate, if I had work permit, so send him my university grades).

    Afterwards I was invited to go to their offices for a 1,5h interview with the Recruiter and the Hiring Manager (Yara has paid for the flight and taxi from/to airport).

    In this last interview they were looking on my CV into detail, also asked about my experiences and described the company and the position. They also asked for references.
