    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Tronox.

    Interview

    First had an interview via school career day. Went well, typical behavioral questions. Next had an onsite interview. Meet with the team, had three interviews. One of them was a technical interview. Was not expecting this. Advice would be to make sure you talk through what you are doing and why-they want to know how you are thinking about the problems. Overall, very impressed with team and management.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tronox.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very typical. I was contacted by the recruiter first who then forwarded my resume to the hiring manager. He immediately contacted me the next day and we briefly went over my resume and the company. In the next few days I was asked to come onsite for an interview.
    The interview consisted of me meeting with almost 5-6 managers with whom I discussed my resume and projects in detail. It was a little tiring to repeat the exact same things over and over. There were a lot of detailed questions on the projects. I also had an onsite Excel test, it was fairly simple. Overall the interview was just like a regular one, with nothing too difficult.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Tronox.

    Interview

    There was a phone interview at first, and then was invited to the plant where there was a panel interview with several of the process engineers and the team leader. Everyone was kind, except for the plant manager but after that bit the whole process was very relaxing. They were simply searching for a long-term employee who was capable and willing to start a family with the company.

    Interview Questions

    • The question that caught me off guard concerned the amount of time I was willing to work there. I was asked by a person who had 17 years working there, so I had to pause because I had not really thought that far into the future yet. I should have had an immediate answer ready, but unfortunately paused too long.   Answer Question

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Tronox (Perth, Western Australia (Australia)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Didn't get any response after the online application until I took the initiative to ask them for my outcome. Eventually got called in for an interview. It was a panel of interviewers, one person from HR and the rest were technical people.
    Really long interview, probably at least an hour long.
    Not very conversational, they were basically reading the questions off a script.
