    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Huntsman Corp (The Woodlands, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Went into corporate HQ and talked to 3 different people during my time there. The first person was the hiring manager who I would be working under. Asked me a bunch of behavioral interview questions, which the other 2 people kind of did the exact same thing. Wanted to know a lot about how much accounting I had taken in school.
