    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Holcim (US) (Dundee, MI (US)) in April 2012.

    Interview

    General answers to questions on type of person you were. Technical questions were average. Would have expected more questions on what I would have done in a given situation. Wasn't concerned with certifications, versus real world experiences. Internal promotions were less than satisfying. Promoting from within should be more prevalent, and promote teamwork and dedication to Holcim.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unexpected was asked or even difficult. Was satisfied with the questions and weren't difficult to respond to.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation on salary.
