    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Anvil Corp (Bellingham, WA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very thorough. had to pass 2 phone interviews before face- to face. Home office staff appear to be close knit. Interview style was casual, but it was clear management was looking for personality fit within the culture.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Anvil Corp.

    Interview

    Had a one on one interview after career fair. The interviewer asked basic situational questions and at the end gave me a picture with two tanks of water and asked me to design a pump for it. I didn't make it to the next round of interviews which was site visits at the Anvil office.

    Interview Questions

    • The question with the tanks of water was the most difficult. Be prepared an know things like 33 ft of water is 1 psi or 100 ft of pipe has 1 psi of pressure drop.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Anvil Corp.

    Interview

    Meet at a career fair. Asked a lot of behavioral questions (ie: talk about a time when you had a conflict and how do you deal with it OR talk about a time you had a difference of opinion). Took about a month to get a response back. Interviewers were really kind and enjoyable. Definitely both really enjoyed their jobs.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked to draw on and discuss how I would design a pipeline from point A to point B over a unknown surface. I think it was about logic/reasoning.   Answer Question

    Process Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Anvil Corp (Bozeman, MT).

    Interview

    It was very informal. I was interviewed at a career fair at one of the universities that they recruit at (Montana State, Washington State, Colorado SoM). During the introduction phase before I interviewed is when I think most of the assessment went on. They told me right there on the spot that they were going to be calling me for an interview. I then was told in the interview that they were going to be calling me with an offer. They conveyed a lot about the company culture in the interview and it really put me at ease with the whole process.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked some general technical questions and questions to try to gauge how well you would interact with a client. They weren't trying to trick you, just trying to assess likability   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was more of a "here's what we're going to offer you" than a negotiation. It was the first job I had so I was a little leary of how to negotiate. I probably could have gotten a bit more. If you don't have a competing job offer and you're freshly graduating, they will probably try to bring you on as an "intern" for 6 months. If you can negotiate into them hiring you much more quickly than this it will benefit you as interns get paid far less (almost 30% less) and don't get *any benefits.

    Lead Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Anvil Corp (Bellingham, WA).

    Interview

    I got the interview through a recruiter. I initially had a phone interview with the hiring manager, Bill who had a detailed copy of my resume. My background has been in all phases of chemical engineering: detailed design, startup & commissioning, operations troubleshooting, and process optimization. However, most of the background has been in polysilicon and not in refinery. Personally I feel that both are closely related. So when Bill called, he asked me a question on relief valve sizing. After that, he was mostly discussing about how his company had a potential opportunity to work in polysilicon but couldn't get into that business. More or less general market dynamics. He concluded the phone call conversation but stating that since I didn't have the refinery experience, he would only hire me if they had polysilicon project. Apparently he knew that from very beginning. So, it was a total waste of time discussing with him. Guess what: I took up the next job in a refinery. I hope Anvil Corp will know in the future that chemical engineering fundamentals do not change from industry to industry and they better look at the resume more thoroughly rather than wasting the candidates time.

    Interview Questions

    • The hiring manager was talking more about the general market dynamics rather than about the company or the position.   1 Answer

    Piping Designer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Anvil Corp (Bellingham, WA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Interviews are fairly short and simple based on the fact that many contract workers are employed in the piping design department. The content of your resume is very important and experience in different aspects of refinery, pipeline and upstream should be clearly defined.This industry is cyclic, so timing is important in getting a job with this company. Knowing a current or past employee will also go a long way in the hiring process.

    Interview Questions

    • Although they never asked any questions about design situations, they did ask about my willingness to travel on short notice.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation was allowed.
