    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Victoria, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at INVISTA in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    They bring you in and you go through a series of interviews with several people in the business. After the interviews are completed, they get lunch, and you talk with the interview team. Once completed they give you benefits info, which makes you think you have the job.

    Interview Questions
    • No question was difficult, all behavior based. They are very slow in reimbursing any money for travel. You feel as though you get the job, and then you really don't get any feedback. Very vague.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at INVISTA in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The first step was a phone interview. They asked the common questions asked in a phone interview, no suprises there. Once they were ready to interview me face to face things got interesting. They flew me to Houston, booked me a rental car and a hotel room. The following morning I was interviewed by four different managers and supervisors at the plant. Everyone was professional and courteous.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at INVISTA in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had interviewed previously on the phone with Koch Industries back in October for one of their other companies and they did not continue the interview process. In January, I received a call from INVISTA asking if I was still job searching and asked if I could do an in person interview the following week. The interview was pretty basic, everyone who interviewed me just asked me personality/behavioral based questions relating to their corporate values and structs and the MBM program. Nothing too bad.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at INVISTA.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a telephone interview invitation three months later. The interview was with an HR representative, so it was pretty much entirely limited to HR-type questions such as describe yourself, what are your strong/weak points, an example of when you succeeded, etc. The representative was very cordial but could not answer many of my department-related questions. About a week later I received an email stating that my application would not be pursued further. Curiously, a few months later I received an invitation to apply for a similar vacancy but was promptly rejected upon doing so.

    Interview Questions
    • I'd studied the top 50 HR interview questions and didn't come across any surprises. However, from some questions it was obvious that they had a very specific job role in mind, so be prepared to defend your experience in specific analytical skills read from a list, etc.   Answer Question
