Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer
Lafayette, IN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Tate & Lyle in June 2009.

Interview Details – it was a phone interview with a recruiter and then i believe a phone screen with the plant manager and hiring manager and then an onsite interview. met some of the plant team for dinner the night before at a nice restaurtant. judging by the way they were dressed these folks were some hillbillies. and i do not mean that in a derogative way, its just that i dont know of many fast food places that allow you to wear cut off shirts to dinner? since when is a cut off shirt "professional?" i knew from that, that this company culture and i were not a fit. the next day was the typical process; meeting with members of the team. apparently they arent used to or did not expect a black chemical engineer to be interviewing with them judging from the hostile response i received from most on the team. i guess being black and well qualified wearing a ralph lauren suit was too much for these "hoosiers." there was one asian on the team, but he thought he was white. so much for "diversity." also, this was the only company that i had an issue with getting reimbursed for interview costs. go figure.

General Management Interview

General Management

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Tate & Lyle in October 2011.

Interview Details – Staffing agency was very professional and organized. Had phone interview, video interview, two in-person interviews. Met with top two key executives with organization. HR was extremely professional. Top executive was complacent, negative to CEO and otherwise not overly positive about organization and strategic initiative CEO had in motion. Unprofessional, and very surprising.

The process took a day - interviewed at Tate & Lyle in April 2008.

Interview Details – It was a very pleasant experience since I had to pass the phone interview and then there were more interviews on site and I had to take a test. It was more of a skills test and it was great. It was easy and the people were friendly. But I was not offered a job.
