    Process Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wacker Chemie (Cleveland, TN) in April 2017.

    Interview

    We did a 30-minute phone interview about six weeks after I applied online. A week later, I was invited to interview on-site (they paid all travel expenses). Interviewed with an HR person and two engineers. The interview lasted about two hours. The first hour was a role-playing scenario: they put me in a room and gave me 40 minutes to read through 17 emails with problems a manager would face (safety violations, people not getting along, etc.) and then 20 minutes to explain to them how I would handle each scenario. The second hour was more "normal" - about 10 minutes testing my knowledge of the company and the position and then 45 minutes of typical HR-type stuff and technical questions (mostly general stuff like thermodynamics, transport, etc.). Found out two days later that they chose to offer the position to someone else.
