    Interview Details

    Two on one interview for an internship. My sophomore year of chemical engineering and every question asked was food based. I think they would have been better off hiring food science majors

    Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Celanese in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I ran into Celanese at the Kettering University Job Fair. I went up to their stand, talked for a few minutes, and was later asked to interview. The interview was very relaxed, and instead of being drilled with formal questions, I engaged in a very casual conversation with the two men interviewing me. We discussed my hobbies, dislikes, and briefly dove into my leadership experience, but nothing serious. That wasn't at all what I was expecting from a big corporation like Celanese. After we talked about me, I turned it around and got them to talk about the company culture for about as long as we talked about me.

    As for hiring, it took absolutely forever. Though I've never interviewed for a job before, I feel it was a bit excessive waiting a month for a decision on the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • At the end, however, they popped a random question on me. They asked me:
      So, pretend you have eight marbles, all of which look exactly the same. However, one of them is slightly heavier than the others. We're also gonna give you a scale to weigh them with, but you can only use it twice. After using it twice, or once if you can, you have to tell me without a doubt which marble is the heaviest. Go.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Celanese.

    Interview Details

    Met with two interviewers back-to-back. Generic interview questions. Interviewers seemed to be more concerned with "fit" than technical qualifications. I also had a phone interview with the director, which was focused on my desire to join based on my communication with previous interviewers (since I "nailed" the in-person interviews).

    Overall, a great experience and I was glad to earn the position.

    Interview Questions
    • 1. How do you approach an unfamiliar assignment
      2. I don't see XX on your resume...how do you plan to overcome this?
