    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    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.

  • Volunteering with the Kidsafe project is a treasured activity for our employees in Vancouver. We've had the opportunity to cook nutritious meals for kids, pack lunches, compete in a pancake competition, attend the career fair, Geek Squad day, and so much more. KidSafe provides 450 vulnerable children and youth with the safety, nutrition, and educational programming they need and deserve during school breaks. Thanks for the shoutout Kidsafe: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQM5S

    Methanex spends their summer with KidSafe!

    This summer break, Methanex generously supported KidSafe field trips both financially and with their time! Many members of the Methanex team became fixtures at Nightingale Elementary where they diligently prepared lunches for the kids to enjoy on their field trips!
