    I have been working at Westlake Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Innovative, forward thinking, fast paced company that is growing fast and welcomes new talent. It is a large company, however the President and upper management still interact with all levels of staff. It is a great place to launch a career. There is also an ons-site gym, and promotion of healthy lifestyle.

    Cons

    The PTO accurals are only 2 weeks / year for salary employees until the 5th year when they max at 3 weeks / year.

    Advice to Management

    Increase PTO, and business casual dress code on Fridays.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Westlake Services.

    Interview

    I received an email to schedule an interview. The interview was a Skype call that lasted no longer than 15-20 minutes. Before the call they ask you to complete an excel test and another test which seemed to test basic math and logic skills both of which are not designed well and are extremely useless. The interview itself was very basic also. After two of the interviewers asked me questions they asked one of the financial analysts to come over and ask me some questions, his question was very vague and pretty bad and it seemed like he didn't know what to do. After the interview they will say they'll contact you in about 2 weeks but it's actually over 2 months.
