    Very lengthy interviewing process because only 1 interview is carried out at a time but there is more than 30 interviewer. It would not be surprise to wait until 3 hours later than your scheduled time.

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Showa Denko (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    A recruiter first contacted me by phone and then set up the interview. I then went to my first interview where I met with the president, vice president, HR manager, and my boss. My second and third interview included the rest of the team I would be working with. They asked standard interview questions, then handed me spectra to interpret. I was a bit surprised with the spectra interpretation on the spot.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Showa Denko (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    This was an interview for a research position in Showa Denko, Japan. 2 interviewers and one of them clearly knew his stuffs and asked a lot of questions about my research experience. It started off with a short, less than a minute, introduction of myself and the rest 80% was about my knowledge in Chemistry, ranging from things related to my honours project to asking if I know anything about organic synthesis and others. After testing me on my knowledge, the HR proceeded to ask if my family will be okay with me working in Japan, if I am bonded to any company in Singapore. Very simple questions.

    Interview

    Attended two time interview. In the 2nd interview talking about salary and I agreed to the amount though lower than my expectation. Received an encouraging email after 2nd interview asking about whether I can really start working on the set date (which I said yes) and if I have bond with my current company which I answered no. But still didnt get a job. I think it's difficult for foreigner without any Japanese skill (even though they said they provide language training).
