    I worked at Albemarle full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people, great salary, great vacation and benefits. It was a fun place to work. I gained a lot of experience while working there.

    Cons

    After the 2013 workforce reduction, morale is going down. Employees aren't happy anymore. It seems as if everyone is jumping ship.

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Albemarle in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by Albemarle for an interview. I was flown down to Baton Rouge. I gave a talk and was interviewed by hiring managers. Interviews were mostly conversations. It was a great experience, the hiring managers very friendly. Company culture awesome. Wasn't offered a job but would recommend working here.
