    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Westlake Chemical (Lake Charles, LA).

    Interview

    The interview was more standard personality question based with very little on the actual duties even when I proceeded to ask. The overall atmosphere was very pleasant and cozy as one would expect in Louisiana.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Westlake Chemical (Sulphur, LA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was an all day affair. It started at 9 AM with a panel of 11 people followed by lunch out, after lunch was a plant tour followed by another panel interview with 5 people. The whole affair took about 7 hours. However the large number of people and two panels was due to the fact that they had multiple positions they were trying to fill/multiple managers interviewing.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a difficult situation, what was it, how did you handle it, and what was the result. (Typical behavioral based interview questions.)   Answer Question
