    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at INEOS (Houston, TX) in September 2015.

    I first did the on campus interview. It was a straight forward interview with little to no technical questions. The questions focused more on handling different situations and behavioral responses. The company is big on fitting in to their company culture.

    Two months later, I was invited to participate in the campus recruitment interviews at HQ. There was a series of three back-to-back interviews where behavioral and technical questions(depending on interviewer) will be asked. After the interviews we took a plant tour.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at INEOS (Vero Beach, FL) in June 2013.

    Interview

    My first phone call was from an Administrative Assistant setting up a phone screen appointment. I was screened by two engineers and a plant manager followed by a formal interview by the same three members in the conference room. The lead questioner was a chemical engineer who knew absolutely nothing about my job, nor did the other engineer, my maintenance manager. The chemical engineer and plant manager would later be fired (2 months later) for numerous causes. That is when I had realized I had made a mistake with this outfit.

    • Topics related to specialty in instrumentation to scenarios on "how did I handle...". Many safety related questions and topics.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Nothing.
