    Pilot Plant Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morristown, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morristown, NJ
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Colgate-Palmolive in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Asked questions about yourself, what you do and why do you want to become it? The director usually comes and interviews students along with another person for 1:1 interviews. Very friendly people and want to see their interns learn. Just be positive and know what you are talking about because they can read off your face if you don't know what you're talking about.

    Project Engineer Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morristown, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morristown, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Colgate-Palmolive in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had applied through my college recruiting website earlier and recieved an invitation for an on campus interview. The interview consisted of two 1:1 interviews, one with the HR rep and the other with the Engineering Manager. The interviews were simple scenario questions, it was rather dry at some points though--especially with the HR rep. They were both basically trying to get through the questions they had on their paper and get answers for them written. The questions were mainly scenario questions "Tell me about a time you exhibited leadership in a team" etc. From what I gather they just want to see that you can work well with the rest of Engineers and that you can problem solve and think on your own. Just know your resume and have good stories to back up each of the scenario questions and you should be fine.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me abuot about a time where you exhibited leadership in a team (paraphrased)   View Answer
    • Tell me about a time where there was difficulty working with people and how did you overcome that (paraphrased also)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
