I have been working at Westlake Chemical full-time (More than 10 years)
Company is making investments to improve the operations
a recent number of management changes
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Westlake Chemical (Lake Charles, LA).
The interview was more standard personality question based with very little on the actual duties even when I proceeded to ask. The overall atmosphere was very pleasant and cozy as one would expect in Louisiana.
