    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kingsport, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Eastman Chemical in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application online and received a phone call approximately 1 weeks later from HR. We set up a time for an interview that was suitable for all schedules. The interview was two weeks out. I was asked to arrive at 7:30am to meet with an HR rep who introduced me to the first interviewer. I was interviewed by two people at a time and would switch out every hour. The interview questions consisted of technical questions and scenarios that you may encounter. Eastman treated me to a lunch of my choice with a few of other employees. Following lunch, I had more interviews until approximately 4 and at 4:30 the manager checked in with me to see how I was doing. He sent me an email within the week to thank me for coming in for the interview and called with in the same week to ask me which group I would prefer to work with. I was hired within 2 weeks and started working a month later.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kingsport, TN
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. 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 Questions
    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.

    Application Details

    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.
