    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    It was pretty hard. The manager, who was there with his assistant, asked a lot of profession-related questions that I was stunned by. Should've prepared more for interview for sure, especially in the case-scenarios questions

    Risk Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Glencore (Bridgeport, CT (US)).

    Interview

    Long process over several months. Pushed my way into an interview without any official posting or recruiter. Initial conversations with managers was extremely pleasant and all were very polite apart from foreign manager who came into the US office and asked me my age and said that my ego wouldn't be able to cope with taking a less senior job than my age would dictate....this was extremely illegal to say in an interview in the US... completely unprofessional.
