    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at W. R. Grace (Littleton, CO) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed with three employees. Two interviewers were conversational and easy. The third used the prescribed script from Grace and the questions came across oddly. The use of a temporary agency meant that the position wasn't direct to hire. A tour of the facility followed the first interviewer.

    Interview Questions

    • What was your favorite chemistry class in school and why?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Non-existent as it was through a temporary agency and they would not ask for higher.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at W. R. Grace (Baltimore, MD) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The Grace interview for the summer internship position was relatively straight forward. I applied via a Grace posting on my college's job site. I was invited to the Curtis Bay site for four rounds of interviews in one day. After first meeting briefly with an HR person who described the interview process, I had 4 one-on-one interviews. 2 with principal engineers, one with the head of the development center, and one with a different HR person. The interviews were all easy. Just questions like "why do you want to work at Grace" and "why do you want to be a chemical engineer" and "describe a time where you had to deal with failure". The majority of the interviews were about my resume.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you have had to deal with failure.   1 Answer
