    Credit Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Solutia in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process at Solutia was similar to processes at other employers. An initial phone interview to determine what experience you have and whether it would fit the job description. Then a face to face to determine if the personality and skills match those of the company. Given my first face to face interview was with a four person panel, I did not have a second interview, but I do know of some people within the company who did.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Solutia in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed for 4 rounds and then got a reject. First round is HR, Tech. Manager phone round and then they called me for onsite. After that there is a Skype interview with a manager from EU. I thought that's the end. But finally they asked me to submit a behavioral test.

       I guess my rejection is due to the VISA problem I had. Good luck with the interview.

    Anonymous Employee  in  Springfield, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Springfield, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Solutia in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by HR personnel in order to set up an interview with two company members who were the head of the department that was hiring (chemistry labs). It was a phone interview that lasted 30 minutes where 1) the job was explained to me in much greater detail than was in the initial job posting and 2) I was asked to talk about my prior experience/background. At the end I was told that I would be notified within a week with either a rejection or I would be asked to come into their location to take a written test. I was not asked to the second round.
