    Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chester, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at PQ (Chester, PA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I applied through my school sometime around February 2012. I received an email from HR sometime around the end of May. The phone interview was set up for the next day. There were basic behavioral questions and we went through my resume in detail. At the end of the phone interview they scheduled a one-on-one a couple days later; it was all very rushed. The one-on-one was very informal. There were a few basic questions just to gauge if I researched the company and we went through my resume, which was followed by a plant tour. At the end the manager told me I would hear from them either today or within this week. I received a call from HR 4 hours after my interview and was offered the position.

    Interview

    3 15-30 minute interviews with 3 different people. There were 2 positions open so 2 of the interviewers were the direct managers for those 2 roles, and the 3rd was the laboratory manager. Each interview was one at a time as opposed to a panel style. Then there was a tour of the labs and facility.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at PQ (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interviewed with three members of the group and then toured the facility. The interview was friendly and focused around a discussion rather than direct personal questions. The discussion remained about my experiences and how maybe how they could relate to the position I am applying for.
