    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied using the web and on their site; basically the same day the job was posted. I not only met, but exceeded all requirements. Never got call back, but a thank you letter after 5 days that I was not selected. I wonder how diversity looks like in there...? Not even a phone screen!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Koch Industries (Stillwater, OK).

    Interview

    Standard questions, interviewer was not personable at all and seemed disinterested from the beginning. After asking around a bit I learned that it is actually currently more difficult to get a job as a man; Koch is attempting to diversify and are intentionally hiring more women now. Heard back via email after a few days.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Koch Industries.

    Interview

    Found the opportunity on LinkedIn. After applying the response was quick from HR who got in touch with me to set up a Skype interview as first round screening. The second round was a face-to-face panel interview at the office location

    Interview Questions

    • Panel Interview questions were very open and the main interviewer didn't drive the interview very well. Seems like He doesn't have a clear understanding of the function in thr first place or the main objectives for the position. This left me with a sales pitch style replies just to fill the conversation. Some questions were really there just to appear sophisticated. It didn't click on both ends so I knew I won't be getting a call back   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Koch Industries (Tulsa, OK) in April 2016.

    Interview

    1 phone interview. 2 back to back 1 hour in person interviews with 2 panels of management from various departments. Word of advice. I could tell by their in depth questions they were specifically looking for detailed experience in their industry. They will dig into your present roll and have you continue to break it down for them. I asked if they normally require an engineering degree, they said no, but my impression from the questions they asked was that is exactly what they desired. I asked several questions focused on the culture, training, and what they do to empower their people. I did not get much details from their short answers. I have been through many interviews with situational questions and did very well from the feedback I received, be prepared for this and be prepared for in depth situational questions about your present position. The interview process was average overall. However 1 or 2 of the panel interviewers made it difficult and seemed to enjoy doing so.
