    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at S.C. Johnson (Racine, WI) in March 2012.

    Interview

    There were two interviewers, both in my field. They had a list of questions to ask and went through the list. Once that was over, I asked them various questions and got to know them more. They made me an offer in person 30 minutes after my interview. HR contacted me the same day with paperwork to fill out. I received the paperwork in email and in the mail and mailed it back within a week.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at S.C. Johnson (Racine, WI) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The interview started with a phone call and lead to a in person four and half hour interview. I was disappointed they did not get back to me sooner regarding the out come. They said 1 - 2 weeks and it took almost a month. They shouldn't string people along especially if you are not the right candidate for them.

    Product Formulation Chemist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Racine, WI

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at S.C. Johnson (Racine, WI) in January 2014.

    Interview

    First interviewed at a conference at the end of 2013 (lots of behavioral questions), then did a follow up video interview in November (quick interview to see if I would be a good fit for the company), then did an on-site interview that consisted of 6-7 1:1 interviews that varied with each person. SC Johnson likes behavioral questions and actually has a packet of them that focus on different areas (i.e. conflict, innovation, team-player, efficiency, etc.). The longer the manager was at the company the more they relied on their own questions for the interview (ex. why should we hire you, why SC Johnson, tell me about our competitors). All of them went through resume and relevant skills that I had. Overall very friendly and a great experience. Haven't heard back yet if I have an offer or not.

    Interview Questions

    • Walk me through the process of product formulation from the viewpoint of a consumer, and from the viewpoint of a chemist? What are some of the main categories we should focus on?   Answer Question

    Case study with an hour and a half to prepare at first it didn't seem to make sense but once I looked into it more it seemed relevant. Then I had to present my findings to the managers who were supportive and asked some probing questions. This was followed by some general interview questions.
