    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at A. Schulman (Akron, OH) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Pretty standard onsite interview. Three people asked typical questions about my background, why I was leaving my previous employer, 5 year goals, etc. They did ask specific questions about the accreditation of the lab I worked at previously, their procedures, how they maintained quality, and how I've trained coworkers. Then the manager gave me a tour of their labs and explained some of their tests more in depth.
