    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Henkel.


    I had a brief on campus interview with the HR rep which went really well. I then had an on site interview which was all day. Since I was traveling out of state to get to the interview they put me up in the Double Tree hotel which is to say that the company has money to throw around. The day consisted of a total of 6 grueling 45 min interviews by different people. Some of the interviewers were really laid back and made it more of a conversation about your experience and such while other interviewers asked those dumb, inefficient, off the wall questions which have no merit of your technical knowledge or personality. As a side note, why do interviewers ask these questions such as 'what superpower would you have' or 'what animal would you be'. Anyway I did not mind having that many interviews and thought it was very good experience, the day seemed to fly by and it did not seem as if I had been in interviews for 7 hours. You will literally be asked every possible interview question imaginable. They end this day with a fake scenario that you are the top people of a company and have to create a fiscal spending report on what to invest money into for the board members while following the company's mission statement as well as paying attention to the markets you are involved in. Quite an interesting exercise to see how you work and make decisions in a group, but it is difficult, and be ready to get roasted for your decisions. Also hope you do not have an arrogant, pretentious person who takes control and forces your group to agree with them based solely on the fact that it has been a long day, you do not feel like arguing, and you only have 45 mins to complete the task. Very nice but strange company. I have never in my experience had to go through so much effort for a job.
