    Middle Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Arkema (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2019.

    Interview

    The experience was negative, because I incurred expenses while traveling to the interview. I made numerous attempts to get reimbursed, but my emails went unanswered. The requests went to senior leadership, whom ignored the requests. I am out almost $100, but luckily, I am not in need of that money, but it’s the principle of the matter. From a candidate perspective, this gives you insight into the organization’s lack of value for people.
