I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at UOP in May 2009.
Interview Details – Slow. They want qualified applicants but do not want to pay for them. They are also pulling in expats to save money and using locals with less experience. This will really only serve to make unhappy clients as their sales people are too far away or do not have enough experience as to how the company works.
Reason for Declining – Cheap company, unhappy employees

Interview Details – Had an interview in the office, with the department manager, the line manager and a HR person.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at UOP.
Interview Details –
The on campus selection process is a three step process. A technical question round, a GD and finally PI. After each round there is a elimination process.
Since its the leading process licensor in Refining Technologies they look for sound technical knowhow not in-depth field stuff but strong basics. Communication skills are also paramount.
A CV containing examples of teamwork and leadership will be held in great stead.
Finally I say come prepared but also be confident.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at UOP in June 2012.
Interview Details – Applied online via the Honeywell careers website. Got an email response the same day to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was short and the questions were pretty easy and simple. I got a call a few days later to go to an interviewing event in Des Plaines. Travel expenses and a night in a hotel were covered. The interview process consisted of a presentation, tour of the working area/pilot plants, and a panel interview. The interview wasn't bad and was a half hour. The whole event seemed targeted towards getting us interested in the full time job rather than the internship.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at UOP in April 2012.
Interview Details –
very relaxing interview. two persons interviewed me. quite standard interview questions about why i want to join and whether I am physically and mentally prepared for the job as it requires 100% travel.
they are recruiting only 1 people so they are really looking for candidates with passion and determination to go through the whole 5 year program.
Need to know some basic technical answers like refinery and distillation. but only 1-2 questions about technical area.
the whole interview is around 45 min. Enough time to demonstrate who you are. very relaxing environment. can probe the interviewers during the questions at the end of the interview. as i was not selected, not sure how they chose people.
Interview Question – describe one refinery process Answer Question

The process took a day - interviewed at UOP in March 2011.
Interview Details – They brought us in for an intern day where we had wonderful tours and a great lunch. Then they had split us up into groups and had us interview at different times. The interview was pretty easy if you are outgoing and can just talk their ears off. They like to ask questions about group work and difficult situations. Overall, just let them hear what they want to hear.
Interview Question – How do you work in a group scenario? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – A lot of traveling is required for the full time. As a younger intern they only want you to record data for them. Overall, it seemed like you would be more of a personal assistant than an intern.
