    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Solvay (Alpharetta, GA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I had a very positive day interviewing a nice cross section of legal and technical employees and management. They were very candid about the workload and pressure involved. We had lunch in the site cafeteria which gave me a better sense of the culture and atmosphere.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked how I would respond to a particular hypothetical office action.   1 Answer
