Getting an Interview
R&D Chemist Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at W. R. Grace in June 2014.
Interview Details – Applied in April, received an interview schedule beginning of June. Interviewed with 6 people for three hours, had a mixed feeling, but mostly positive, because of need to tune-in with a different person every half a hour. I felt pretty relaxed, because I was well-prepared answering interview questions about my career. In the end of three hour interview tour I was offered to share lunch with a hiring manager and several colleges. Even I tried to behave relaxed, by this time I was really exhausted, and I am not sure i made the right decision to go for lunch. I tried to show myself from the best side, and felt this way during an interview, however I was not offered a position unfortunately.

Process Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at W. R. Grace.
Interview Details – applied through the website. received a phone call from the HR person dealing with this position. informed the HR individual that i needed a view of the job description. i never received the job description prior to the interview. apparently an email address is hard to figure out.
was moved on to the phone screen with the interview team or plant staff. they were loud, and the typical "old school" engineering mentality that i abhor. you guys arent tough, so quit acting like it. i knew the interview was going no where when they opened with the typical "tell me about yourself." usually when interviews open with that, they really dont have any worthwhile questions to ask you.
needless to say i was not asked for a site visit, and if i was most likely i would not have accepted. also, i did find the job description on my own sometime later and to say i was over qualified is an understatement. i really dont know why they contacted me at all.

We began with walking through my resume first, he seemed very interested in my background, followed several questions related my past experience and deals we made. He questioned me about why I shift my career to corporate finance and why W R GRACE. The first round of interview is not so tough I think. At last, he gave me the question time.
