    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Henkel (Cary, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for position online. The lab manager contacted by phone 3-4 weeks later to schedule a phone interview for a week later. Phone interview was very relaxed. Went over resume, he asked about my experience found on the resume. Told me there were quite a few applicants and if I was wanted for a second on-site interview, I would be contacted a week. I was called the next day for a second interview that was scheduled for a week later. The onsite interview was very laid back as well. I was given a tour of the lab and facilities, then interviewed by 4 different people, 30 minutes each. The lab manager was my last interviewer. He said I would be told in a week if I got the job. I was offered the job the next day.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Henkel in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website. A few days later I received a call from one of their recruiting contractors. I had a 30-minute phone interview with the recruiting contractor and immediately afterwards she asked me to schedule for another 30-minute phone interview with one of the directors. A few days after that phone interview I was asked to come into the office to interview with five members of the team I would be working with. All of the interviewers' personalities were varied, so it required thorough preparation in order to respond adequately to all of their different questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Henkel in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was called in for the interview about 3 months from initially applying for the position. I was asked to create a powerpoint presentation for the interview. When I arrived, I was escorted to the office where the interview was to take place. It immediately started as soon as I stepped into the room. I was first welcomed and I introduced myself. One of the interviewers were stateside and the other was overseas as this was a video conference interview. I was asked to present my powerpoint presentation and was ask a series of questions. I felt no pressure from the experience and I was very impressed with how it was conducted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Henkel (Scottsdale, AZ).

    Interview

    I applied online via my university's career website. About a week later, I received an e-mail informing me that I was going to be partaking in a phone interview with two people in the department I was applying for. The phone interview was fairly manageable. The interviewers took turns asking questions and then I finished the interview with my own questions for them. I was invited for a second round of interviewing. This was an in-person interview at their headquarters. The interviewers in this interview were high level directors within the department. Essentially, their questions were directly based on the information presented in my resume. That made me feel more comfortable during my interview. I ended up receiving a phone call the next morning and was offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no technical questions or excessively difficult questions, but I remember being asked about a time when I had to deal with conflict and how I went about resolving it.   Answer Question
