    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Stepan.

    Interview

    Applied to position online and was contacted by HR to schedule a phone screening. Once I passed the phone screen I was asked to come onsite. I was given a tour and met the team, very great people and very welcoming. I interviewed with 4 different teams as they wanted to make sure I was a good fit for the position as well as the team and culture.
