    Process Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    Very detailed and thorough hiring/interview process. Focuses on soft skill in addition to technical knowledge and competences. HR does a fantastic on understanding your expectations as a potential employee so as to make sure the fit exists. I personally enjoyed the interview process because it was two-way rather than a interrogatory process.

    Sales Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ashland, KY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ashland, KY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Ashland in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    After applying online, I received a phone call from a HR representative. The individual asked basic questions about my work history. I believe the initial phone call was to investigate salary expectations. I was not prepared for the impromptu phone-call, and if I had to do it over, I probably would have asked to call the HR individual back at a more convenient time. The entire phone call took about 20 minutes.

    Accountant (Level Based On Experience) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Ashland.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. No phone screening. One face to face interview with a 3-member panel (the department manager, his manager, and someone from HR). The direct manager asked the largest number of the questions, but the other two participated in the questioning. Interview lasted about 40 minutes. I could tell at the end of the interview that I would be going no further in the process (based on their manner).

    Interview Questions
    • Can you travel? This was unexpected as the job description did not give any indication of travel being required. It came to light in the interview that the specific functions to the role (also *not* in the job listing) required travel.   Answer Question
    • Give a time when you went above and beyond expectations (and management noticed it)   View Answer
