    Process Control Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wayne, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Johnson Matthey (Wayne, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Initial interview was over the phone the day after I applied, we set up an appointment for me to get another interview onsite and to get a plant tour. The culture of the interview was very laid back, informal, and very few questions. As a suggestion, come prepared with questions for them regarding the position. After this interview I got an offer the following morning.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Johnson Matthey (Wayne, PA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    HR phone screen, followed by in-person with hiring manager and one other. Accommodated their request for very early morning in-person meeting due to their hectic schedules. No communication for several weeks; no response to follow-ups. Finally asked in for a 3rd interview/presentation to a group of 5-6. Only one person showed for the presentation, despite it being scheduled 2 weeks out to accommodate everyone's schedules. Was not informed another candidate was selected until I followed up (again) 3 weeks after interview. Very negative and unprofessional experience from beginning to end.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Johnson Matthey (Devens, MA).

    Interview

    Scientific staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. Majority were from CRO background. Only negative comments would be salary was a joke and the recruiter was just awful . The recruiter was a bully, extremely rude, and very unprofessional. I could never get him on the phone to answer questions or get paperworks until the last minute (if at all).

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson Matthey (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Initially meet with HR and then you sit down with the Quality and Production Managers. Generally spend about an hour to 1.5 hours in this process. Next is a tour of the facility to see if it is something that interests you. If there is a positive first interview, then a second interview may be scheduled and you will be put in a background check. Usually takes 1-2 weeks for the background check to be completed. If it comes back acceptable then an offer letter is put together and submitted.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Johnson Matthey (Wayne, PA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Just gave them my resume at the career fair, received an e-mail asking for an interview and a plant tour. It was very laid back and we just kind of joked around with the HR people and some of the other engineers. I really enjoyed talking to all of them. They were a lot of fun. I did 2 one on one interviews with two different engineers and they were both fun to talk to.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Johnson Matthey in July 2015.

    Interview

    They went through my resume background, and they digged more about my experience based on that. There are two people interviewed me, they were both team members of the hiring position. The hiring manager didn't show up. It was a very casual interview, the interviewers are nice and friendly. It is not like a typical formal interview. Overall is great experience
