    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Bostik in December 2015.

    Had what I thought was an excellent phone interview with an in-house recruiter. The recruiter was great and responsive throughout and after the interview.

    Following the phone interview, I was instructed to take an online assessment which was quite difficult. It took me well over three hours total. It was a combination of the SAT and a Rorschach test.

      Online Assessment - Reading comprehension/logic questions, math 'word' problems, spatial ability questions, personality profile
