    Interview

    Very easy. Had a behavioral and technical portion. Both were doable. You have to think on your feet. The technical portion wasn't that technical, more so business oriented. It was more behavioral though.

    Interview

    I was invited to interview with the company for their PDP internship program after speaking with recruiters at a campus career fair. I was given two interviews: one behavioral and the other technical. The company seemed very focused on processes rather than outcomes. They were willing to hire multiple engineering disciplines for the chemical engineering positions.
