    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rio Tinto (Singapore (Singapore)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Took almost 3 weeks to get a call for an interview.
    Interviewer was unprepared, made small talk, very nice and easy going interview, talked about my job experiences and how I dealt with problems. The universal question of where I see myself in 2-5 years. How do I deal with people when there is a problem, how to distinguish between personal and professional, provide examples etc.,

    Overall the experience was very good and improved my interview skills, did not get the job in the end but made great impressions to the hiring manager.
