    Engineer Coop Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lubrizol.

    Interview

    Lubrizol recruits at my college and after a friendly chat with other young engineer they asked if I wanted an interview. I said yes, the interview was with two other chemical engineers. They really emphasized that they were looking for a 4.0 GPA but ended up offering me a position anyways. They are very slow to return offers (a few weeks minimum). Over all flow of the interview was conversational and relaxed.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Lubrizol (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    I originally applied for this position in April and had a phone interview with a recruiter. Two months after the interview, I still had not received a reply. I called the recruiter's supervisor and finally received a response. I then had an hour long phone interview with the hiring manager. About a month and half later, I finally had a face-to-face interview with hiring manager, supervisor, a manager from another department and a HR rep. The entire process took a little over 4 months. Communication with and within the organization could use some improvements.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any difficult questions, however the supervisor made a few very rude comments   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lubrizol (Wilmington, MA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Got the posting through a recruiter, and once I decided it would be a good fit, things moved pretty quickly. within a few days they wanted to do an on-site interview with the entire management team (individually). Met with 6 people for almost an hour each, which made for a long afternoon. the interviews consisted of mostly job specific questions and bit of behavioral stuff (from HR). Overall a good experience, apparently they wanted one particular type of experience which I didn't have. I thought I was a good fit but oh well.

    • Everyone asked me some version of "Describe a situation where you had to deal with a difficult employee."   Answer Question
