    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Celanese.

    Interview

    Interview itself was relatively simple, with a pre-screening phone interview followed by a second phone interview with more detailed personality and process skill questions. It appeared that qualifications were based on previous experience and the interview process was mainly to judge personal fit with the position. Drug testing (normal for the position) was still more strict than usual, requiring a hair test.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical personality questions such as: describe a time you have failed; describe a time you have lead a team; etc.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I participated in a phone screening interview with a recruiter. I was not selected for an in-person interview. The company's recruiter emailed me to set up the call. He was very friendly and professional. I was surprised that compensation came up immediately and should have been more prepared to talk about compensation at such an early stage in the process.
