    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at W. R. Grace (Cambridge, MA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Standard two person interview functional interview. The VP followed by the head business unit finance person. This was preceded by two HR phone screen interviews with the HR recruiter and then his boss. Heavy focus on salary maximum that would be paid for the role. Typically there's a range so this was a bit unusual.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at W. R. Grace (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    Started with phone screen with recruiter (she was great). Followed by in-person round with four members of the team. The first was a group interview with three people, the second interview was with the head of HR.

    All in all, I was very impressed with the process. The person driving the process leads recruiting in MD, and she totally "got it" and had amazing follow-through. She also did a very good job prepping me and staying me updated through the process.

    I was very impressed with the company.
