Interview Details

I got an email that confirmed the time of the first phone interview from the HR. It was about 30min phone interview with the HR within 3 days. Then the on-site was scheduled in 3 weeks. It was a very tight day. Presentation in the morning, followed by 1-1 interviews with 8 scientists. People are nice there. The working environment is fancy. I actually enjoyed discussions with everyone.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Arkema US in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    First had an on campus interview.
    Two months later got invited for a on-site interview.
    On site interview was from 8 am to 4:30 pm. One on one with Scientists, Managers, R&D directors and VP of research.
    Left with a very good impression of the company.

    I had read a lot of negative reviews. Talking with the people there during the interview process dispelled these. It looked like a company with a troubled past till 2010 but the company has been doing great since then. Employee satisfaction also has increased a great deal since 2010.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Arkema US in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviewer asked preset questions that were most likely read directly from a list. Althought, the interview was for a scientist job, the questions were very standardized (ie. Tell me about yourself, What are your strengths? Tell me about a time when you solved a problem...etc...). The interviewer did not seem very interested in my answers and was very impersonal.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Arkema US in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview started early morning and consisted of seven or eight 1:1 interview and a presentation. A lot of behavior questions were asked and many of them were the same. So be prepared well. Some questions I remembered. Why did you go to this college, why did you choose our company, what is your strength.
