    Contract Chemist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PPG (Pittsburgh, PA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Easy...a recruiter contacted me and scheduled a month in advance. I put it on my calendar and prepared accordingly...researching the company and reviewing my resume. I went in in business attire and had two people interview me separately. I then received a tour of the facility and they said they would be back to me in a few days.

    Interview Questions

    • Not any more difficult than other interviews I have been in. They asked me about my background and how I would place amongst other chemists.   Answer Question
