    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Formosa Plastics Corporation, U.S.A. (Point Comfort, TX).

    Interview

    Initial interaction with the HR representative is pretty good; although the HR rep. did withhold information regarding the job position. Actual interview took half a day and consisted of a panel which included the hiring supervisor and some of the department employees. The panel took some time to get to know the interviewer and then proceeds with the company's standard interview protocol of questions.

    Afterward, the company's reimbursement for travel is received in a timely fashion. However, the same cannot be said about the company's decision regarding the interview. HR rep. says to allow 2 weeks regarding the decision, but does not respond to e-mail once the 2 weeks has elapsed. Don't expect to hear anything from the HR rep. if the interviewer was not selected for the position.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Formosa Plastics Corporation, U.S.A. (Point Comfort, TX) in August 2013.

    Interview

    The interview is pretty straight forward, they set up a few questions that you're not suppose to know the answer to just to test your analytical skill. The location is pretty remote but they have a very clear guidance of the interview process, and of course they reimburse you all of the traveling expense including one night at the hotel.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Formosa Plastics Corporation, U.S.A. (Port Lavaca, TX) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Barely minimum. They just want to know you can talk well and your credentials are good.
    In person interview for entry level positions is a formality as long as they like your credentials

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    This starts with a contract employment with Formosa and full time with Testengeer.
    For entry level, they didnt budge from their offer. Unsatisfactory, but thats the same for everyone.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Formosa Plastics Corporation, U.S.A. (Livingston, NJ) in August 2010.

    Interview

    It is a tightly connected inter-personal community, which means that it is much easier to get an interview or an offer if you know someone from inside, just like any other companies. Referral could possibly make the interview a "stamp process". A test was given, but a general passing grade is just what is expected. It is hard to say who is the decision maker, it could be the first person during hte interview process, although who may not be the top-positioned person during the whole process.

    Interview Questions

    • Any expreience on Accounting rule such and such? (The question was very technical-oriented.)   Answer Question
