    Reasons for Declining

    The pay was too low and they offered a lower position than what I applied for. It seemed unprofessional and they were unwilling to negotiate.

    Analytical Chemist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Exton, PA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Frontage Laboratories (Exton, PA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    the hiring process is responsive however the interviewing and candidate selecting process is not very good.

    I was asked political questions as in how does your home (middle eastern country) think about America.

    Since I am not the typical White caucasian, they assumed I needed visa sponsorship.

    All the interviewers did not know how to lead the interview or hold a sensible conversation instead I had to encourage them to ask me questions.

    Interviewers were discreetly interested in having me work 50+ hours a week while paying my 10K less than their Chinese employees for the same position (84% of the company is made up of Chinese who are on sponsored visas.) They have to pay the sponsored Chinese employees an industry competitive salary since they are sponsoring the employee and they must submit this information to the federal government for approval. In order to continue their cost-cutting agenda, they pay citizens or resident aliens less than their Chinese sponsored counter parts for the same position as a way to balance their unbalanced books.

    By the way I discussed if there was any tuition assistance, I was told yes by the scientists and no by the HR. Further, you don't get paid overtime or time and a half even if you are working 70 hours a week like they want you to.

    Besides that, Frontage is a great company to grow in and learn about the Chinese culture.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Frontage Laboratories (Malvern, PA) in January 2012.

    Referral from a classmate, no much actual interview. a lab tour and interview with some of higher technical team and a lot of management. People seem to have no time to talk to me. They want to get out and get to work right away. More questions about technical issue than behavior questions
