    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Waste Management (United States)


    Started with a phone interview with the recruiter, and then I was invited to a virtual interview with HR and District Manager. Both interviews were frustrating. When they weren't grilling me, it felt like they were trying to talk me out of moving forward.

    Tell me about a time when you received constructive criticism.
