    Internship Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at LyondellBasell (Channelview, TX) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Applied for an Operator internship @ the Channelview, TX location. Received a call about a month later for a 1-on-1 interview with employee. It was basically a "get to know you" type of interview. Interviewer said he liked my responses and explained thoroughly what was expected of you if hired on for the internship position. Never made it to the 2nd interview. Wish they'd at least follow up and tell you instead of having you wait. I was told I'd receive a call within a few weeks, whereas other people received a call for the 2nd interview the following day.

    Interview

    At our career fair, I was invited to a dinner with the recruiting engineers. After the dinner, they called to offer me an interview on-campus the next week. I accepted, and the next week we met in a tiny room at my college. The interview questions were highly behavioral and the engineers interviewing me were very awkward.
