    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Koch Industries (Houston, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty simple, but detailed interview process. Applied online thru job board and got an email to schedule a phone interview. HR manager interviewed with very basic screening questions for 15-20 minutes. She told me that she would reach out surely within a week to schedule another phone interview with the Controller and Accounting Manager. A week later, interviewed with the controller and accounting manager over the phone. This interview was very detailed and everything on the resume was asked a question about. Interview was scheduled to be half hour but lasted well over an hour. 2 weeks later, I was called on site for the third interview. This interview was 4.5 hours long, 30 minutes each with certain executives and managers. Mostly behavioral and situational questions, nothing too technical.

    Applied at campus career fair and got an initial interview on campus. They were also very nice to have a social before interview. All of them on our campus were alumni who work for Koch.

The talk was very nice which consists of behavior based questions and also market (demand/supply) analysis on agricultural industry. We also talked about policy issues. He seemed like me. However I did not get a further interview and do not know why.
