I applied through college or university and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Celanese in April 2012.
Interview Details – Sent my resume through my University. I got a call later that same day to schedule a conference phone interview. They were pretty professional.
I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Celanese in January 2012.
Interview Details – This was an internal posting. They just went through the motions because they already knew they were going to promote from within. The interview process was disproportional to the job level. Some of the interviewers were professional while others seemed to get satisfaction out of making the candidate squirm or be uncomfortable. The reasons they gave for their selection were rehearsed, prepared and inaccurate because they needed to justify their choice.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Celanese in March 2009.
Interview Details –
My resume was submitted by a current employee at the company to fill a position that they had open. I was contacted by an in-house recruiter who set up a phone interview with a manager. After speaking with the manager, the recruiter again got in touch with me to set up an interview day. Travel expenses were covered. On the interview day, I had three separate interviews: a panel of future co-workers, the manager who had interviewed me over the phone, and an executive in the area of the open position. Everything went very smoothly. A while later (maybe a week or three), I received a call again from the recruiter with an offer, along with an overnight FedEx package the next day with the details.
Advice? Be yourself. If you have to "act" to be acceptable for them, then you're going to have to "act" the whole time you are working there. You can't keep that up.
Interview Question – Why should we hire you? View Answer
Negotiation Details –
The initial offer was disappointingly low. I spoke with the recruiter and explained to her that I would like to be paid what I'm worth and that I thought that the going salary was considerably higher. They came back with an acceptable offer (by phone and on paper) that also included a sign-on bonus.
Advice? Don't accept an offer that you don't think is reasonable.
