    Interview Details

    Interview on campus through campus recruitment. General rundown of credentials, knowledge about the company and it area of business, and asked several STAR situational questions, 5 in total. Really easy to talk to recruiter and received a lot of feedback about the company, hiring situation, and the job and growth.

    Interview Questions
    • Started the interview asking where I saw myself in 5 years, responded that I would like to see myself on my way to being a project engineer. Recruiter was a new graduate and already a project engineer.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at INEOS in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and then received a call to schedule an interview about 2 weeks later. I interviewed with two of the head managers first. After that, I immediately interviewed with 2 ladies that I would be working with if selected for the position.

    The two managers were extremely nice and made me feel very comfortable. It was a relaxed atmosphere and they were very conversation and helped put me at ease. It was probably the best interview experience I've ever had.

    The two ladies I interviewed with were equally as nice and conversational.

    About a week after the interview, I received an email saying I hadn't been selected. Everyone was very nice and respectful, from start to finish. Seems like an excellent company to work for and the culture is positive.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at INEOS in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Started off with phone interview for pre-selection screening -> received a call for in-person interview one week later. The interview process was straight-forward - the people were very accommodating and welcoming, and the interviews lasted 3 hours. Three separate interviews occurred, with each interviewer asking similar personality and situational questions. Lunch was served with a slice of company overview, glossing over the operations and benefits. Facility tour -> end of interviewing day.

    Interview Questions
    • One guy was very adamant about getting the interviewee to answer in first person regarding previous school/occupational projects. If you worked in a team at any point and tend to be a team player, watch out! Be sure to explain your _direct_ role in projects, even if multiple people accomplished the same goal. I'm not sure why the interviewer badgered over this so insistently, but the interviewer wants to hear your _direct_ actions taken when referring to group projects. Some times it is appropriate for an 'I' in 'team'. (Mainly when it's a hurdle you must pass through to land a job)   Answer Question

    Chemical Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at INEOS.

    Interview Details

    Applied to the position through an on campus recruiting website. After a pre screening, I was awarded an interview. The interview was purely behavioral with questions such as "what are your biggest technical strengths and weaknesses?" or "Where do you see yourself in 10 years?". Pretty standard question bank. Another interesting question was to talk about a time when I had to change priorities.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked about other companies I had applied to and if I had heard back from any of them yet   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    It was not necessarily the field I wanted to work in.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at INEOS in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Online personality test conducted a week prior to interview. Individual interview with HR, cross-functional panel interview and off-site group interview. HR interview was routine HR. Panel interview was unexpected format. Very heavy concentration on results of online personality test. Overtly challenging lead interviewer. Exchanges between individual interviewers revealed differing philosophies on some topics. One panel member was primarily observing.

    • The results of the personality test were discussed at length although the results were not shared ahead of the interview.   View Answer
