    Materials Chemist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Materia in February 2014.

    Interview

    Very straightforward. HR assistant contacted me through e-mail and set up a day for interview. Interviewed with a few senior researchers that I would be working with. Answers were pretty standard, they asked details about my previous experience, likes/dislikes. Also asked about my work ethic and gauged my attitude to working there. The 3 senior chemists seemed positive about my skills and were nice to talk to.

    Interview Questions

    • Hiring manager was very vague when he asked me about my flexibility. Did not go into specifics about overtime or weekend.   1 Answer
