General Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and interviewed at Kemin Industries.

Interview Details – Depending on the position, resumes are typically parsed by HR professionals. After that, typically the hiring process starts with the hiring manager giving you a call requesting a phone interview. If you pass that initial interview, you typically meet with your potential teammates and they vote on you. There are no tests, only scenario questions.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you had to do something unpopular and how you handled it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Always attempt to negotiate. If you aren't happy with the salary then don't take the job unless it's your dream position.

CLS Assistant II Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Kemin Industries in January 2010.

Interview Details – For lower level positions the process is rather standard. They ask several behavioral based questions about how you have reacted/performed in past experiences or how you work with others. They ask questions like what are your strengths/weaknesses, how you describe yourself. Higher level positions usually require a presentation of some sort. The process take about a half day, longer for upper level positions.

Interview Question – There are time when we have difficulty working with other team members. Describe a time when you and another team member had a conflict and how was it resolved?   Answer Question
