    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.

    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

    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.

    Marketing Lead Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Henkel.

    Interview

    They found me on LinkedIn, invited to apply on the website, and then schedule a phone interview. They asked me a few questions, and one o these were about my Visa. So, even I am authorized to work in the US without sponsorship; the recruiter took me out of the process claiming that Henkel just hires Citizens or Green Card holder. They proudly advertise that are an equal opportunity employer but don't act like.. What a shame!!!

    Regional Sales Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Henkel in February 2018.

    Interview

    Was contacted via LinkedIn by a recruiter (adp, initials C. F.), although I’m currently happily employed by a much newer and innovative brand with a larger territory and amazing benefits/salary. I reached out to the recruiter to let her know not likely for me but I might have some leads for her because of my 10 years in this category and field. She couldn’t give me any information unless I applied, did not know the territory or salary. I was told if I apply, she could talk to me more about details. I was still not interested for myself but linked my LinkedIn to the application process to proceed as she suggested. She immediately reached out and scheduled another phone interview. One hour before interview, the call was cancelled due to scheduling conflicts. I emailed back saying I’m happy to reschedule. The recruiter then sent me an email back saying I wasn’t qualified for the job? Lady, I’m overqualified. I was trying to do you a favor and maybe help out a colleague. So unfortunate they have an unprofessional and frankly unorganized recruiter. I’d love to refer someone I know but not to that recruiter.

    Associate Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bridgewater, NJ
    No Offer
    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.
