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.
