    Methanex creates work experience opportunities for youth with disabilities

    Over the past year, Methanex has provided opportunities for young people with disabilities to gain work experience at our facilities in Chile. To provide these opportunities, Methanex partnered with the Centro de Capacitación Laboral León Humberto Seguel - an organization with more than 23 years of experience providing training and support to young people with disabilities.


    The Methanex case competition at UBC Sauder unites global MBAs - Canadian Business

    GIT Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Geismar, LA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Methanex (Geismar, LA) in October 2015.


    2nd round interviews at the Geismar plant. The "interviews" were several tasks where we worked with other candidates while being observed. The tasks aimed to measure how we work with others, what our values and morals are, our presentation skills, and ability to deal with stress and think on the fly. A very interesting interview process.

    Task 1 - assigned to a group of 4, given 30 minutes to make a powerpoint presentation describing why Methanex is the best company to work for, followed by 20 minutes to present as a group. You are observed during the entire 50 minutes

    Task 2 - working in a group, determine the order in which you will rescue people from a cave which is filling with water. You are given a profile on each person trapped in the cave and must justify your choices to the panel of interviewers.

    Task 3 - working alone, you have 15 minutes to formulate an opinion on a controversial subject. You must then present your opinion to a panel of interviewers and defend your position/field questions.
