    Tax Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Koch Industries (Atlanta, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen with HR, phone screen with Tax Director, then on-site interview with 5 members of the department (one-on-one). Interview questions were standard - some behavioral, some about past work experiences. Each person seemed to be assigned two core values to ask about, so read up on those beforehand so you have some relevant experiences in mind.

    From the initial phone screen to the job offer, it took about 3 weeks in total. Fastest turn-around I have ever experienced! If they want you, they aren't going to waste time.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you were wrong? (speaks to core value of humility)
      How you find fulfillment in your work? (speaks to core value of fulfillment)   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Koch Industries (Atlanta, GA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very intense. The first was a hour-long phone interview. Which was all behavioral based question. Its was a lot for a phone interview. Passed the phone interview then was the on-site interview which was 10 time more difficult. They printed a page of question of behavioral based question to ask. I have been through many interview and I would have to say for an internship I think this has to be the most difficult interview I have been in. They want to know how you work not how you interact with people. The have a culture based around MBM which is weird.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Koch Industries (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Two Phone Interviews and two in-person interview days for me. They generally used behavior based questions. There are no trick questions, everything is pretty straight forward. Interviewers across the board are respectful and friendly. Culture fit is a big focus. Humility and respect are two things they are looking for, so interviewees need to toe the line between answering questions with confidence highlighting achievements without coming across as arrogant. Be prepared to be interviewed by many folks with some of the same questions being asked by multiple interviewers. The duplication of questions isn't intentional, but it shows that the company is focused on certain areas. The interviewers also spent some time trying to sell me on the company, which I viewed favorably. I had been interviewing a bit at the time, and one of my annoyances were interviewers that acted as if the job they had was a gift they were going to bestow rather than a partnership. Koch acted more like they were looking for win-win situations. I enjoyed the entire process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Koch Industries (Atlanta, GA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Lengthy, one set of interviews took 3 hours!
    It's very much Situation, Behavior, Outcome; you tell them stories the whole time. They want to know how you reacted in certain situations, what your behavior was, and the ultimate outcome. This is basically a pre-screening test of their MBM strategy/corporate culture.
