    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Spartanburg, SC
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Milliken (Spartanburg, SC) in January 2012.

    Interview

    An interview could involve answering some chemistry questions related to the manager you are working under. It's not too bad and I think personality will go a long way in getting you in the door. Barring any blatant faux pas.

    You should probably study some before your interview. This should include the work in which your manager is involved in as well as some chemical mechanisms that could be related to his or her work.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was them offering a number and me accepting. I had previously lost a job due to layoffs so this was a no brainer. However, the pay was a bit low for everything a lab technician could be expected to do or know.

    Research Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Milliken.

    Interview

    Fairly typical PhD interview process: dinner the night before with full day interview the following day. Started the morning with the 1 hr research seminar, then ~8 one-on-one interviews. As the day went on, it seemed that every person had technical questions to ask me that were not related to my field of research. Felt like they were constantly "rattling my cage" and at times felt a significant amount of pressure and tension during the interviews. Lots of "go to the whiteboard" moments as well.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Milliken (Spartanburg, SC).

    Interview

    I had an on-site interview in SC. The interview process was a little bit unexpected. The interview took a whole day and started with a presentation in the early morning. After the presenation, the interview proceeded with normal 1-1 interview. Most of the interview content was not related to my projects or presentation. They asked questions more leaning to random thinking or not related to your field. They expect you to be faculty-caliber and know most of the things, from science to engieering, not neccessarily related to your own expertise. Maybe they like those people with knowledge breadth and depth. The whole interview process was not very pleasant. some people pretended to be nice, but not really. Some were not nice at all. Be prepared if you are invited
