I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Koch Industries.

Interview Details – Interviewed on campus then was invited for a company visit. Company visit consisted of a welcome dinner folled by two interviews the next day.

Interview Question – How did you add value in your past work experience?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The company is very successful but the people didn't seem particularly happy or personable. They gave off a almost brainwashed vibe.

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Koch Industries.

Interview Details – In my experience, I applied for the position online and received a phone call within a few days. The phone call was to schedule a phone interview or have it then if I was available and I was. The call was approximately forty-five minutes long and covered a high level of skills and experience. After that, I was called in for an in-person interview. Upon arrival, I met with 4 or 5 current employees for around thirty minutes each.

Interview Question – Describe a situation you have experienced where you had made a decision but were overruled but your decision turned out to be ther right one and how you handled it?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate vacation time.

I applied online and interviewed at Koch Industries.

Interview Details – It took several weeks after applying to them, to hear anything back. First interview was a phone interview very informal, went over the information in my resume, and they asked a few simple questions of me regarding my work experience, and the type of work I enjoyed doing. At the end they asked if I had any questions, and after that, they said they would get back with me in a week or so, to see how they wanted to proceed.

Interview Question – What type of accounting issues have you researched?   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Koch Industries in December 2011.

Interview Details – Interview process takes half a day. If you have a morning interview, your last interview will be a lunch interview. Generally, you will interview with 6 people. All of them ask you very similar questions, although each person is looking for different pieces of information. From what I could tell, most of the questions came from a list I found on monster.com. If you prepare well, the interview is not very difficult. If you do not prepare well, you will have a very hard time.

Interview Question – Honestly, I overprepared for the interview and I wasn't suprised by any of the questions. They were from monster.com.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The last person you speak to during the interview is the recruiter. They ask you salary requirements and other requirements. The offer I was given was a lot more than I even wanted, so I didn't ask for more.
