    Document Control Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Veolia in August 2014.

    Interview

    The interview and hiring process was very easy. Had experience in document control with another engineering company. They were very detailed in explaining the position in document control and mentioned the document control system they used. I've used other document control systems but not this system before and it's NOT user friendly at all. Way to complicated and too many variations nothing was written in stone.

    Negotiation

    Through a contract agency.

    Sales Director Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Veolia (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Lots of money was spent on the interview process. I had the impression that they were in a big hurry to get me out there. 3 or 4 levels of interviews were required involving a lunch and a dinner. A full presentation to the executives was a sort of test.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no unexpected questions; the process was very straightforward, almost hurried, though it involved multiple steps.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Had to return to the verbal agreement on two occasions as I was being short-changed in the hiring document. This should have been a clue.

    Chemist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Veolia (La Porte, TX).

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews. Initially it was with lab manager. My second interview was with the chemical cleaning manager. The 3rd and final was with the lab manager again and I believe I had a drug test and that was about it.

    Interview Questions

    • This was an entry level lab position. Veolia is a very good company if you can forgive the travelling and non chemist duties such as dragging pipe and using a wrench :)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I had an offer for 40K initially but every year I received a 10% bonus as well as a 5% raise yearly. It was actually a very good company to work for but the hours were long and weekend work may have been required.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Veolia (New York, NY) in February 2014.

    Interview

    They initially set up a phone interview with one of the directors of a division in the North East. After a phone interview checking my background and familiar skills, they requested an in person interview at the office. All in all the process was low stress but definitely challenging regarding the way the interview process was handled. Very formal, professional environment.

    Interview Questions

    • What I wanted to accomplish with the internship.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Veolia.

    Interview

    There was a significant amount of attention paid to making sure I could deal with stressful situations (i.e. customers & colleagues). Manager had been with the company 13 years and resigned 1 month later.

    Negotiation

    They offered a reasonable salary for someone just out of college. I had 10 years prior field service in a different field but had returned to college and just obtained my B.S. in Environmental Science so it seemed reasonable.
