    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sugar Land, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sugar Land, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed 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.

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

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at SABIC in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, was contacted shortly after and conducted an hour long typical phone interview. After that I was invited in to meet with the General Manager. Everything went very well and the interview was fairly informal and overall I was very impressed. I was invited a second time in which I was told I was one of two left in the hiring process. I was given another hour interview with some more complicated and difficult questions.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntersville, NC
    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SABIC in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by their recruiter. I had a phone conversation, after which I was quickly scheduled for a phone interview with the hiring manager. I was immediately scheduled for a face to face interview at their office. The interview was conducted by a panel which included the hiring manager. They did not schedule enough time for all the questions they had plus time for me to ask a few. While I appreciate the phone call from the hiring manager to convey that they were not extending an offer and the invitation to ask any questions about the interview results, I don't feel I was given honest answers to why I was not extended an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • I expected more questions about my job skills and accomplishments. What I was asked sounded like the results of a Google search for typical interview questions.   Answer Question

    Analytical Chemist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at SABIC.

    Interview Details

    Day long interview. Flew me to the location, paid for hotel, meals, rental car, etc. Another person interviewing for the same position was there too. This seemed a little awkward a first, but it makes sense to do. After the interview it took a while for them to get back to me. They were undergoing a restructuring of the department at the time and hired no one for the position.
