Average Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Mercuria Energy

Interview

The interview process was very detailed - but easy going and casual. I was asked specific questions about my credentials. Mercuria definitely asked questions which would give them an idea on whether or not I would be a good people and culture fit. Post interview communication was prompt and they were very transparent and forthcoming on the next steps. HR was also definitely very open and welcoming to any questions I had. The COO and Global Head of Financial Operations along with other team members and management were very engaged during the interview and their questions focused mainly on how my skill set would be a good fit for the various positions at Mercuria. Unfortunately; I could not accept the position due to circumstances outside of the job or the company itself. My takeaway from Mercuria was that the organization is composed of genuinely good people who are just trying to put a good team together. I would encourage well-qualified candidates to apply at Mercuria.

Interview Questions
  • Specific questions related to your credentials as they pertain to the position that you are applying for.
