    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at INVISTA (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Started with phone interview. Met with several managers from different departments and regions. Asked the usual questions and engaged common small talk. Some interviewers were personable, some were no so personable. Interviewers seemed to be experts in their respective fields. Weeks went by and was then asked to come back to accept an offer. Offer was accepted and began work to be submersed, for what seemed like weeks of computer training.

    In Person interview: 2 interviews onsite with more questions like those from the phone interview. Very friendly atmosphere. The interviewers created an ideal environment to elicit the answers without turning it into an interrogation.

    Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Athens, GA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at INVISTA (Athens, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Did not hear back for two months after applying. Went through 1st phone interview which lasted 45 minutes. HR recruiter was 15 mins late for call appointment. She advised me that I would be invited to on-site interview within a week. Didn't hear back for 3 weeks then received call to schedule on-site interviews. Date was set and then re-scheduled by them and pushed back a week. Finally attended interview on site nearly 3 months after applying and was told I would have "feed back" within a week. I felt like the interviews on site went well and waited for a response and did not hear back for 2 weeks when 2nd phone interview took place. I was asked if I would be open to re-locating if the opportunity presented and more behavior based questions. This call lasted about 40 minutes. Overall the process seemed unorganized and was EXTREMELY lengthy, bureaucratic and drawn-out. I was professional, patient and gracious throughout the process and followed up the next week with a thank you letter to each of the four interviewers who asked repetitive questions. After nearly 3 months of the carrot dangling, including two phone interviews and 4 in-person interviews I received a copy-paste "thank you" but we have chosen to not to consider you further etc. Big let down after such a lengthy process to receive an impersonal email rejection. I called the recruiter who seemed bothered that I called to obtain feedback and was disappointed to learn the "hiring team" were concerned if I "really" wanted to work there or not! Which was expressed as thier main concern. I was told I interviewed well, was articulate, professional and we'll qualified for the position! Yet they were not sure if I wanted to be there! Never mind the fact that I worked at the very same location for several years while it was owned by DuPont until I was lay-off when INVISTA (Koch) bought the company. I guess fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me! Gladly moving on now!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at INVISTA (Wichita, KS).

    Interview

    1st round HR phone pre-screen, 2nd round office interview with 3-5 management level people on the same day. One interview was done in the company restaurant, in a relax environment. Most of the questions were about your resume, communication skills, and most importantly, your integrity. To see whether you are a good fit to the company MBM culture. Make sure understand the company culture well before the interviews. The company CEO wants to carry this the culture to the world, and the next generation. If they are still interested in you after the interviews, then the next round will be drug test, background test. Very detail in checking previous employers' information and reference. If everything is ok, they will draft an offer very fast.

    R&D Laboratory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chattanooga, TN

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at INVISTA (Chattanooga, TN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Received a call for a phone interview with an HR person. Interview lasted a little over an hour (because I talk a lot). She had me walk her through my resume and asked some follow up questions related to my supervisory/management experience. It was a pretty standard HR interview. Received a call two weeks later for another phone interview with the hiring manager. Interview again went slightly over an hour, unfortunately the interviewer had schedule another meeting immediately after the interview so I felt like the last 20 minutes were rushed. This interview was more about my technical experience and supervisory style. Both phone interviews were pleasant and detailed. I would not say either one was hard, but I did spend a lot of time profiling the company and doing my homework. I was told the next step would be to bring me in town to do a day of face-to-face interviews and tours. Unfortunately, a month after the second phone interview, I received an email stating "for business reasons the position has been cancelled and will not be filled at this time". Disappointing since I though I had done really well in the interviews and though the position was a great fit and wise career move.
