    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at W. R. Grace in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied in April, received an interview schedule beginning of June. Interviewed with 6 people for three hours, had a mixed feeling, but mostly positive, because of need to tune-in with a different person every half a hour. I felt pretty relaxed, because I was well-prepared answering interview questions about my career. In the end of three hour interview tour I was offered to share lunch with a hiring manager and several colleges. Even I tried to behave relaxed, by this time I was really exhausted, and I am not sure i made the right decision to go for lunch. I tried to show myself from the best side, and felt this way during an interview, however I was not offered a position unfortunately.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at W. R. Grace.

    Interview Details

    applied through the website. received a phone call from the HR person dealing with this position. informed the HR individual that i needed a view of the job description. i never received the job description prior to the interview. apparently an email address is hard to figure out.
    was moved on to the phone screen with the interview team or plant staff. they were loud, and the typical "old school" engineering mentality that i abhor. you guys arent tough, so quit acting like it. i knew the interview was going no where when they opened with the typical "tell me about yourself." usually when interviews open with that, they really dont have any worthwhile questions to ask you.
    needless to say i was not asked for a site visit, and if i was most likely i would not have accepted. also, i did find the job description on my own sometime later and to say i was over qualified is an understatement. i really dont know why they contacted me at all.

    Interview Details

    It is campus recruiting for MBA student. The employer is very friendly. We began with walking through my resume first, he seemed very interested in my background, followed several questions related my past experience and deals we made. He questioned me about why I shift my career to corporate finance and why W R GRACE. The first round of interview is not so tough I think. At last, he gave me the question time.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at W. R. Grace in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with three employees. Two interviewers were conversational and easy. The third used the prescribed script from Grace and the questions came across oddly. The use of a temporary agency meant that the position wasn't direct to hire. A tour of the facility followed the first interviewer.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at W. R. Grace in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    The Grace interview for the summer internship position was relatively straight forward. I applied via a Grace posting on my college's job site. I was invited to the Curtis Bay site for four rounds of interviews in one day. After first meeting briefly with an HR person who described the interview process, I had 4 one-on-one interviews. 2 with principal engineers, one with the head of the development center, and one with a different HR person. The interviews were all easy. Just questions like "why do you want to work at Grace" and "why do you want to be a chemical engineer" and "describe a time where you had to deal with failure". The majority of the interviews were about my resume.
