Difficult Interview

EHS Consultant Interview

EHS Consultant
Covington, VA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at MeadWestvaco in April 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online. Got an interview with a recruiter within a week. Started with a 60,000-foot view of my resume, then typical behavior based questions. Wanted to know my salary requirements. Interviewer was very professional and kept the conversation one-sided - all about me and nothing about what the job was like.

Interview Question – Nothing really unexpected. Was the first interview that I had to go through my resume and give details on my accomplishments.   Answer Question

Interview Question – Probably, the greatest weakness question.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Call the recruiting manager! Don't be afraid. Once you have an offer, it's perfectly reasonable to negotiate. Recruiting was excellent and very helpful.

Chemist Intern Interview

Chemist Intern

I applied online and interviewed at MeadWestvaco.

Interview Details – Applied online through the MWV career website. I was contacted by a recruiter to set up an interview with two managers. The interview was one week after the initial phone call. Interview was very relaxed and focused mainly on my resume with some behavioral questions. I was out of the country the following week, but once I returned and checked my phone I had a voicemail from the initial recruiter asking for me to call her back! Super exciting and I have enjoyed every minute of this opportunity.
