    Easy Interview

    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.

    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.
