    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Tate & Lyle.

    Interview

    They speak with you one on one. That was the best part. Felt like they really cared to know me. After that the ball can be dropped. It seems like they only have 3 people in their HR department, and you're playing phone tag. The length of this whole process was ridiculous.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Tate & Lyle (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR and given a preliminary screening. Then a phone interview with the hiring manager was set up. After I passed that screening, I was invited in for a face to face interview with several team members that seemed to go well. I was then put "On hold", with not much information coming back. They seemed to have a tough time making a decision, and the position had been open for some time. After waiting about 6 weeks, I received an offer for another company and let them know. They thanked me without explanation about the status of the positon there.
