    Purchasing Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Texas Petrochemicals in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I initially did a phone interview with an HR-rep and the VP of Purchasing. Both seemed friendly at the time and quite determined to flll the position. However, when I showed up for the actual face to face interview, I was interviewed by four people, and the interview was more like elementary and interrogating in nature. I could tell that they were looking for someone who could do grunge work, clean up messes and make them look good at the end of the day. I found this organization to be very weak in nature and searching for some Pie in the Sky stuff that not even the folks in the interview was capable of. I would suggest that anyone looking at this company, keep looking, not worth the interview or agony of having to sit through it.

    Reasons for Declining

    The oranization seemed to be one that wasn't really sure of itself, and the managers seemed a little sketchy at best. I remember in the iterview process, seemed like they were holding back some improtant details about the job, or their answers to certain questions were "guarded". I just didn't feel comfortable with this company.
