    Purchasing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Catoosa, OK
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Umicore (Catoosa, OK).

    Interview

    The interview went very well and lasted for 1 1/2 hours. I was told there were about 10 people being interviewed and I would hear back from them. Well that did not happen. It is very rude to take that much of a candidate's time and never let them know when the choice is made.

    Corporate Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brussels (Belgium)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Umicore (Brussels (Belgium)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    (1) Standard CV screen, (2) interview with Vice President of Corporate Development, (3) interview with HR, (4) full day assessment center. Good experience with interviews but very amateurish follow up by HR department. Lots of miscommunication, little to no feedback and (standardised) replies only after insisting. Lack of respect by HR made overall experience with company pretty negative.
