    Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cytec in October 2014.

    Interview

    This interview was one of the more frustrating ones I have experienced. The entire process took more than 2 months.

    Step 1: Head hunting recruiters (chosen by CYTEC) called me and screened me
    Step 2: Head hunting recrutiers BOSS called me and screened me
    Step 3: Head hunting recruiter gets back and does a SECOND screen
    Step 4: Head hunting recruiter boss called me and screened me a SECOND time
    Step 5: Head hunting recruiters coordinate interview with manager at CYTEC
    Step 6: Interview with manager at CYTEC
    Step 7: Head hunting recruiters coordinate interview with a SECOND manager at CYTEC
    Step 8: Interview with another manager at CYTEC
    Step 9: Head hunting recruiters take a 2 week break..........
    Step 10: Head hunting recruiters coordinate a site interview
    Step 11: Go on site interview in south east texas
    Step 12: Head hunting recruiters coordinate another site interview in Connecticut.

    Step 13: At this point, my patience has ran out and I declined any further games that they wanted to play.

    Reasons for Declining

    This company seems like they don't even know what/who they want. Very disorganized hiring process. No confidence in the company or management.
