    EID (Early-Identification) Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at SABIC.

    Interview Details

    After meeting with the recruiters (Reliability Engineers) on campus, I received a time slot for an interview the following day. While notice was short, both engineers were very pleasant and understanding, as they were both graduates of the same university from which they were recruiting. Questions were mostly behavioral, asking about prior project and team experience. Little technical knowledge was expected of inexperienced undergraduates, and the atmosphere was light. Primary takeaway was positive.

    A following a quick followup email, the response from HR regarding the position came a few weeks later than stated -- the lack of an offer was thus not surprising, but the time frame slip-up was rather disappointing.

    Engineering Generalist Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at SABIC.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication with SABIC was very cordial and professional. The recruiter did a great job of setting up a good time to chat and answering my questions. He was prompt about getting back to me and passing on my information to the hiring manager. That is where this interviewing process fell apart. The hiring manager was nearly unreachable. After an interview over the phone with the hiring manager I was asked to fly out for an onsite interview. One week went by and no contact. Another week went by, still no contact. 4 weeks went by with me emailing or calling at least once a week to find out what was going on and still no contact. Finally, a meeting was set up for 2 weeks from then. I waited for flight and hotel information - 1.5 weeks go by and nothing. Once again, I am forced to track down someone to let me know when I should be flying out and where I'll be staying. During the interview I met with some great individuals. I felt the interview went well - in fact, I thought I had killed it. The one problem was that the hiring manager wasn't even there that day. I still have not met him face-to-face. I came home and was told that a decision would be reached and that I would be contacted within 1 week. 3 weeks later I am forced to once again track down the hiring manager. He doesn't return my calls or my emails. I send in an ultimatum and am contacted by the recruiter the next day telling me that I was no longer being considered for the position.

    Wow.

    Now it's been another 4.5 weeks and I'm still waiting to be reimbursed for the trip.

    Interview Details

    Met with them at the career fair, had to convince them they wanted a material science major, emailed about two weeks later for an on campus interview. I think the person I talked to was just general knowledgeable about my major. Otherwise, was very focused on why I did not want to go into research and development.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at SABIC.

    Interview Details

    An all day interview process that featured five, 45-minute interviews with an hour long information session and tour that followed. SABIC then took us to dinner to allow us to see the great culture they have on display at SABIC. Overall, great experience, but they could shorten the duration of the interviews.

    Lead Scientist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at SABIC in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview was fine, typical of a long day with little break. Lunch was provided by visiting a local restaurant.
    The interview schedule was thrown off by some other work going on at the site on that day. Seemed that some individuals were aware of the on-goings while others were either not willing to admit it or were oblivious.
    The job description was a little vague. Interview team did a very good job helping to describe the position.
    Took a long time to get the offer from them after being told I would get an offer.
    The site was different when I interviewed than when I hired on. It was misleading and would not have influenced my decision had I been told but feel like I was intentionally misled.

    Negotiation Details
    There was some back and forth on pay. The offer increased by a minimal amount.
