    Interview Details

    I applied through website, got phone interview 1 week after. All questions are behavior questions. Questions are not hard to answer, you just need to prepare for them. I didn't go further, I guess my answer didn't make recruiter satisfied or they found better candidate.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Plaines, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at UOP in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was quite nice. Received a phone call from HR and was flown from my present location (IA) to Marriot in Des Plaines. A tour of the Pilot Plant was given at the Des Plaines location. Seems to be a great place for a chemical engineer to begin work upon graduation. People seemed professional and friendly. The interview was pretty average. Sat in front of 3 long-time employees. Be prepared to know and explain your resume inside and out.

    Interview Questions
    • Written on my resume was a skill regarding my ability to work in a team, interface with others, etc. I was asked to explain/prove this.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Plaines, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 months - interviewed at UOP in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    1. Application online
    2. 90 min phone interview, all about research details
    3. On-site interview:

    The on-site interview was tough. Firstly did a technical presentation for 1 hr. Then group interview by 10 scientists, asking difficult questions. Then individual interview by some scientists.

    Interview Questions
    • Any details in the presentation can be asked and even if it is nothing related to what you do. Probably just a technical term and you need to know deeply.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at UOP.

    Interview Details

    Always delay the process. reesukts are declared late. They dont come as promised. They keep you hanging in middle air. Since its a really prestigious company. people have they hopes pinned up on it. but it gets deayed and shattered most of the time because they forget about you. The HR deparment really needs plumbing
