    Interviewed with 5 people lasted 3 hours. Typical behavior questions, provided history about company. Thought the interview went pretty good. But apparently they didn't. Should have known, when I asked for business card the manager said "I don't have one".

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Celanese (Irving, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    They care more about whether you will fit in with the group then your overall resume. Make sure the interview is a conversation. They want to know if you will fall in line with what management wants. They kind of need "robots" (people that just do what they are asked to do and not ask questions.)

    Interview Questions

    • They ask you to talk about yourself.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Celanese in December 2010.

    Interview

    The process can seem fragmented depending upon the business unit and location. My initial impressions were that the company was stable with a solid managerial infrastructure.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Celanese (Irving, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The CISO of the company contacted me through LinkedIn after reviewing my profile. The Interview process was pretty relaxed. I interviewed with 5 people, 30 minutes each. The interview was more on the conversational side, talked about my interest in the security industry. I talked about my pentest labs and my projects from school.

    IT Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Celanese (Dallas, TX) in April 2008.

    Interview

    My resume was submitted by a current employee at the company to fill a position that they had open. I was contacted by an in-house recruiter who set up a phone interview with a manager. After speaking with the manager, the recruiter again got in touch with me to set up an interview day. Travel expenses were covered. On the interview day, I had three separate interviews: a panel of future co-workers, the manager who had interviewed me over the phone, and an executive in the area of the open position. Everything went very smoothly. A while later (maybe a week or three), I received a call again from the recruiter with an offer, along with an overnight FedEx package the next day with the details.

    Advice? Be yourself. If you have to "act" to be acceptable for them, then you're going to have to "act" the whole time you are working there. You can't keep that up.

    Negotiation

    The initial offer was disappointingly low. I spoke with the recruiter and explained to her that I would like to be paid what I'm worth and that I thought that the going salary was considerably higher. They came back with an acceptable offer (by phone and on paper) that also included a sign-on bonus.

    Advice? Don't accept an offer that you don't think is reasonable.
