    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at LyondellBasell (Atlanta, GA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Was called as part of a large set of interviews, was put in a room one on one with one of their recruiters. We did a 30 minute interview but they had time and allowed me to ask several questions at the end about the process and what would be happening in the future. It was relatively nice and not too stressful. I was called as a "secondary" candidate if that is helpful, but I don't think it made much of a difference.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time you did not get along with someone and what you did to resolve the issue.   1 Answer
