    Interview

    one 45 minute interview on campus. pretty standard questions. If you do well you are invited to king of prussia PA for a round a 6 45 minute interviews. It is pretty intense, and a whole lot of talking. You will be asked the same questions many times. Also they are pretty found of asking technical questions. For example i was repeatedly asked to describe distillation, the difference between PFR and CSTR, heat transfer (exchangers) etc so it would be wise to review if you are rusty.
