I worked at Arkema US full-time
Its a fine place, decent enough facility, Many good coworkers. Real global teams, and some interesting science going on. Great emphasis on safety.
Slow moving culture. Claims to be "innovative chemistry" but is in reality quite risk adverse and conservative.
Advice to Management
Let [encourage] people to move around a bit. Seems many people have been in the same positions for years. Silos have formed and getting things done is difficult
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Arkema US (Cambridge, MA) in September 2016.
I interviewed with a recruiter as part of on-campus recruiting. The recruiter was friendly and not intimidating. The interview was a mix of research/science-related questions and HR questions. There was first a ~1 hour presentation by the two recruiters the day before and the next day was 45 minute interviews for people who were selected. I thought I did well, but ultimately did not get an on-site interview. The recruiters mentioned that ~50% of candidates who get on-site interviews receive offers.
