    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Koch Industries (Tulsa, OK).

    Interview

    First round interview: on campus, about 30 min. The interviewer asked questions about my resume, then moved on to simple behavior-based questions.

    The second round took place at John Zink and included a plant tour and lunch. There were three consecutive interviews each last 45 minutes with 2 interviewers in each interview. The questions were slightly tougher behavior based questions, with a emphasis on demonstrating how you live out the Koch Industries Guiding Principles in your life. There were also questions regarding which section of John Zink you would like to work (I.e. Flares, burners, etc.) and your plans for the future.

    Overall, everyone at John Zink was friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Koch Industries in February 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was very structured. Behavioral questions combined with technical questions. There was a panel of engineers from different backgrounds. The type of engineer that matches the type of job you are looking for will ask the technical questions, and the others will ask the behavioral questions. Hiring is based on technical aptitude and alignment with company's core values.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a technical question regarding a class I had not yet taken. Interviewers wanted to see how I would go about solving a problem that I did not yet have the knowledge to solve.   1 Answer
