    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UOP.

    Interview

    They intereviewed right after the career fair at my University. Then very next day, no online application or anything. Took my resume and scheduled in my time slot and everything.

    The interview itself wasn't very hard. A couple personal/behavior questions. They glanced over parts of my resume but I think we spent most of the time talking about the company itself.

    After that I was given an acceptance letter for their second round interviews within a week or two. Their second round interviews are on site so they had us travel to Des Plaines, Ill. They're very flexible with their travel arrangements as I had to cancel on the first group of second round interviews. You spend two days(Thursday and Friday) in Des Plaines.

    They call this second round interviews Fantastic Friday. It includes plant tours and social meeting with employees in the company

    The second round interviews are much harder with three groups interviewing. Usually each group is made of two or three people. The questions are very resume focused asking you a lot of technical questions about my resume. Still not a bad thing just gets tiring having to answer very similair questions each round of interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Where do you expect to be in 5-10 years. It's not a hard question but it's VERY important to them because of their business model.   1 Answer
    • How do you believe your work on your resume relates to the company and how can your expertise help the company?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There really isn't a negotiation phase.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UOP in October 2014.

    Interview

    Went to an info session at school, applied the next day at a job fair, invited for an inperson interview the next day and then invited to Fantastic Friday the day after that. The interviews are very casual so there is nothing to worry about. There are no technical questions as they are not trying to throw you off, they are just looking for the very best candidates.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UOP.

    Interview

    I applied through website, got phone interview 1 week after. All questions are behavior questions. Questions are not hard to answer, you just need to prepare for them. I didn't go further, I guess my answer didn't make recruiter satisfied or they found better candidate.
