    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Evonik (Piscataway, NJ) in September 2015.

    I applied for lab intern position online and soon a recruiter replied me with a quick phone interview. She asked why do you want this job and then arrange a on-site interview next week.

    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Evonik (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Single interview required. Skills are very "on the job" so the interview is mainly to see if you're a likable person. People have left because they never quite "gelled" with the company culture so fitting in is considered very important. Techs don't need a degree if they're involved with the nepotism circle (lucky) but for everyone else, at least an Associates is required - preferably in a STEM field.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Very professional and straight forward questioning. The "star" method wasn't really used, so it makes for a less robotic interview. It also seemed more personal as the interviewer really did look thoroughly at my background instead of simply glancing at it.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you name a time when you had to make a decision that required risk? How did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mobile, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Evonik (Mobile, AL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews, one with HR and one with hiring manager. The first interview with HR is behavioral, they mostly just ask questions about whats on your resume and nothing tricky. The second one is more like a conversation but will vary based on who your hiring manager is. Both people in charge of the internship are very nice (Dwayne and Florian) and will like it if you ask about their background and make a connection with them. Theyre looking for people that will be future employees not just interns for the summer

    Interview Questions

    • Very conversational, Tell me about yourself, Tell me about your experience at... no trick questions   Answer Question

    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Evonik (Birmingham, AL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume through a friend who works there. Within 24 hours I was emailed to discuss my availability for the job. We set up an interview for the following week. The interview was extremely laid-back. Their biggest focus was on my lack of experience in the specific role I would be feeling. However, I was able to assure them by citing some of my past experience that I am a fast learner and I am willing to complete independent study to get up to speed. Once I convinced them of this and was able to demonstrate some of my skills, they were eager to introduce me to every member of the team, including the head of the department. I was told I would hear back within the next week, so I am looking forward to an email in the next few days!

    Interview Questions

    • If we were to hire you full-time at the end of your internship, would you be interested in relocating to Germany?   Answer Question
