    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at UOP.

    Interview Details

    They intereviewed right after the career fair at my University. Then very next day, no online application or anything. Took my resume and scheduled in my time slot and everything.

    The interview itself wasn't very hard. A couple personal/behavior questions. They glanced over parts of my resume but I think we spent most of the time talking about the company itself.

    After that I was given an acceptance letter for their second round interviews within a week or two. Their second round interviews are on site so they had us travel to Des Plaines, Ill. They're very flexible with their travel arrangements as I had to cancel on the first group of second round interviews. You spend two days(Thursday and Friday) in Des Plaines.

    They call this second round interviews Fantastic Friday. It includes plant tours and social meeting with employees in the company

    The second round interviews are much harder with three groups interviewing. Usually each group is made of two or three people. The questions are very resume focused asking you a lot of technical questions about my resume. Still not a bad thing just gets tiring having to answer very similair questions each round of interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • Where do you expect to be in 5-10 years. It's not a hard question but it's VERY important to them because of their business model.   View Answer
    • How do you believe your work on your resume relates to the company and how can your expertise help the company?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There really isn't a negotiation phase.

For UOP, it's not necessarily what you make, it's how you make it. The subsidiary of Honeywell's Specialty Materials segment develops and licenses technologies for processing chemicals. The technologies mainly are used in petroleum-derived products and chemicals (such as ethylene and propylene), but also in the manufacture of products further downstream like plastics, detergents, and fibers. Three-quarters of the world's ethylene production is made using UOP technologies. UOP also produces catalysts, alumina adsorbents (used to purify gas and dry air), and molecular... More
