    Manufacturing Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Momentive in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to the position by a recruiter from a national firm. I met with three people during my interview.
     The only turnoff during the interview was someone answered a personal cellphone for a non-urgent call. The details of the job laid out were true to the actual requirements of the position. Each person was forthcoming about the downturn in business in the region. I was pursuing an MBA which, as I was told during the interview, would not be needed for the position. The offer and background process was quick.

    Interview Details

    It was ridiculous. To many question unrelated to the job, to personal. It was almost like an interrogation for homicide. In all it was the dumbest interview i have ever had. Management needs coaching on their interviewing skills.

    Procurement Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Momentive in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was quite smooth but had a lot of interviews.
    First two rounds on the phone with the HR and a headhunter then on site 4 interviews - pretty much one whole day.
    Fairly easy questions except for a couple surprises. They take a while before they tell you the decision - also you need to really follow up with regular emails.
