    Internship Interview

    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.

    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!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Evonik (Parsippany, NJ).

    Interview

    My first interview was with HR and the Supply Chain Manager. I was,asked about my previous job responsibilities and why I left. I advised it was,due to my company relocating to NC. HR had few questions and most were based off of the recruiters information. The Supply Chain Manager had more questions because I had Logistics background as well as CS. I had been an International Shipping Coordinator and been certified for shipping hazardous materials. The CS Manager was not available to meet with me on the day of my interview. I needed to return two weeks later. I met with her as well as the group leader for the department. The interview questions were very basic. Have you been on many interviews, have you accepted any job offers, what type job are you looking for, have you ever had a problem with a coworker.
