Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Kingsport, TN

I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Eastman Chemical in May 2010.

Interview Details – The application process begins with an online application system. HR does all prescreening and contacts for additional interviews. A phone interview is typically next. After that I was interviewed by the hiring manager. The position was offered on the spot, then back to HR for salary negotiation (there was no negotiating) and an attempt to negotiate additional vacation time as I had 3 weeks at my current employer, this was also non-negotiable.

Interview Question – All questions were typical targeted selection.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiating on salary or benefits. They did not take any of my prior work experience (in a chemical mfg facility) as related experience. Unless you are a degreed professional, negotiations are off.

Entry Level Systems Analyst Interview

Entry Level Systems Analyst
Kingsport, TN

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Eastman Chemical in November 2013.

Interview Details – I was offered a phone interview after speaking with Eastman at the job fair at my school. The phone interview as basic questions from my resume and then I was allowed to ask questions about the company. After the phone interview I was offered an on-site interview.
The day before the interview I was invited to attend a dinner with a staff member and another interviewee. The day of the interview I was picked up at the hotel and taken to Eastman. First there was a tour of the building that we were interviewing in, and then I was allowed about an hour to talk and find out more about the company while the other candidate interviewed. The actual interview was a panel interview with four employees. The interviewers asked questions about the projects on my resume as well as my interests. They also asked behavioral questions where the key was to see what skills I had.

Interview Question – Have you ever missed a deadline? If so, describe that time and what the end results were.   Answer Question
