    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Whole process took approx a month. I was reffered by current employee. Two weeks later, I was contacted by HR member - phone interview. During the call, I was invited to face to face interview. It went well, easy test, communication in english. I was given more than enough space to ask questions. Two days later, I was invited to second round. Again, managers I met were very pleasant. I received an offer a day later. No negotiation about salary - wasn"t even needed.

    Associate Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bridgewater, NJ

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Henkel (Bridgewater, NJ) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Six 45 min long interviews, followed by a group task. Questions were intended to understand the thought process and flow of ideas, not necessarily knowledge. Most questions were about previous experiences.
    The group task was not very well designed. Together, all interviewees had to assess the financial performance of a company and suggest improvements. While it relied heavily on collaboration, the presentation did not help candidates highlight how their contribution influenced team decisions. The activity was severely constrained by time, having just 45 mins.

    Interview

    Basic interview, nothing too hard or complicated. I heard back from my recruiter in about a week. A lot of their HR is outsourced in the Philippines, so expect a lot of form e-mails.

    One interview with the project manager. This was my first professional interview and I was not fully prepared for the big questions and answers honestly and candidly. The project manager seemed put off by my naïveté, but admired my genuity. My advice: relax and be genuine. Come info across as false diminishes your chances.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Henkel.

    Interview

    This was through the University Career fair. Spoke with one of the recruiters, who asked me multiple scenario based and project based questions. Was later called for another face to face interview. This was a shocking experience, because it seemed like the recruiters had a preconcieved notion about the Industrial Engineering background I came from and seemed like I wouldnt be a good fit for the role. I think they should exclusively mention that they need only chemical engineers. This would safe everyone some time and effort

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Henkel (Cary, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for position online. The lab manager contacted by phone 3-4 weeks later to schedule a phone interview for a week later. Phone interview was very relaxed. Went over resume, he asked about my experience found on the resume. Told me there were quite a few applicants and if I was wanted for a second on-site interview, I would be contacted a week. I was called the next day for a second interview that was scheduled for a week later. The onsite interview was very laid back as well. I was given a tour of the lab and facilities, then interviewed by 4 different people, 30 minutes each. The lab manager was my last interviewer. He said I would be told in a week if I got the job. I was offered the job the next day.
