Manufacturing Intern Interview

Manufacturing Intern
Morton Grove, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Avon Products in June 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through LinkedIn and got contacted for an "internship event"/ interview the next day. The interview was one month away at the time. Drove to the manufacturing plant and was given a plant tour by the HR along with 3-4 other candidates. Met 3 other engineering managers that were gonna be the ones interviewing us. Was interviewed by 2 engineering managers, asked lots of behavioral questions and some case studies.

DSM Interview

DSM

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Avon Products.

Interview Details – Had 3 phone interviews and one in person interview.First couple of phone interviews were with the HR department. If you get pass that, then you get to talk with someone that may end up being your manager or on that same level. If you pass all of the testing and backgrounds then you get an in person interview. If you pass that you may have 1 more phone or in person interview with that persons superior

Interview Question – There were not really any difficult questions. Most were based on how you would react in certain situations and some examples of how you handled some difficult situations in your past employment experiences.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. They gave offer, you accept or decline. Pay and benefits are good, but keep in mind you'll be working an AVERAGE of 60-70 hours per week plus home office time. When you calculate that down to hourly it doesn't sound so great.

Analytical Chemist Interview

Analytical Chemist

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Avon Products in May 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online, was contacted about 2 weeks later by human resources department to schedule phone interview with someone else. Phone interview was scheduled at 4PM, wasn't contacted until 4:30, so by the time they contacted me I was pretty anxious. Asked the typical interview questions, went over resume, asked me what my most difficult experience at work, wasn't expecting to answer questions like what are polymers etc.

Interview Question – What is a polymer?   Answer Question
