Process Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Orem, UT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at U S Synthetic in March 2014.

Interview Details – Pleasant Interviewing process. The focus seemed to be making sure that you would be a good fit for the position rather than being grilled on specifics.

Interview Question – No specific questions per say, rather there were vague, open ended questions that they asked that seemed as if they were looking for specific, concise responses.   Answer Question

Student Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee

Interviewed at U S Synthetic

Interview Details – It took a while to get my foot in the door. I eventually received a tour of the place and was introduced to the Engineering Department manager. After checking back multiple times and submitting my resume to several individuals, I had 1 interview with the engineering group manager and a fellow full-time engineer. Best advice would be to have a reference internally. They seem to win out every time, and it worked for me.

Interview Question – In the interview I was asked to identify potential root causes of an on-going problem dealing with collets and justify my reasonings.   Answer Question

Student Engineer Interview

Student Engineer
Orem, UT

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at U S Synthetic in June 2012.

Interview Details – I heard about the job position through a friend of mine who is in the Mechanical engineering program with me at Brigham Young University. They also post positions though their website and through the school's engineering department. I handed him a resume and he took it in and hand delivered it to my future boss as well as a recommendation. Latter I got a call for an interview and then a few weeks after that I got a call for a job offer.

Interview Question – Tell me a story about how you have worked on a detailed project; have used design principals; have worked as a teammate; as a leader; what was a great accomplishment in your life?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate higher, I was excited to get engineering experience as a job, not just an internship, before graduating.

Finish Operator Interview

Anonymous Employee
Orem, UT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at U S Synthetic in June 2010.

Interview Details – Brother worked there and sent my referral in to HR, as well as a temp agency. Got a call for an interview and went in a few days later. The interview was relatively easy, and just had to answer a few questions. They contacted me again after a few more days and offered me the job. It was a huge pay increase from what I was currently making, so I accepted on the phone and then had to have a drug test. Started three weeks later.

Interview Question – I was not very technical minded, so some questions were a little tough. But it was entry level, so that wasn't that hard.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations, other than when you could start.
