    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Koch Industries (Wichita, KS (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The process of setting up the interview was frustrating in itself (and I am a pretty patient person).
    I was emailed by two different people, who both did not reply promptly and when they asked for my availability for the phone interview, I provided them with three different times and dates in the same week.
    They randomly replied the next day with a completely different time and date. I went ahead and went with it and cancelled one of my corporate calls that morning (Rude). Then to add to the mix, they had the dates mixed up- which I called them directly to clear up. Pretty confusing..
    The morning of the interview they called me at 7:20AM, yes you read that correctly, to confirm it.
    The interview was very brief. To my surprise on the call with the recruiter, was my "who would have been" direct report on the call as well. This baffled me.
    I felt like they rushed everything and really didn't give me sensible questions that pertained to my work ethic, education or experience.
    I was quite disappointed at the end of this call actually. Then not even 45 minutes after the call I received a declination email.
    KOCH: If you are hiring for some new HR personnel, feel free to reach out.
    If you aren't, you should really ask yourself why.
    I think my teenage boys could have done a better job coordinating, planning and interviewing.
