    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ashland in February 2015.

    Interview

    This was not a good experience. I don't even think the HR person read my resume before contacting me over the phone. The position was labeled as a job for someone with no experience (entry level), but I was passed over for not having an internship or co-op. Most of the questions dealt with lab experiences. This was a very confusing job posting, and I hope that the company learns to ask for what they actually want before they accept applications.
