    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Huntsman Corp in May 2015.

    Interview

    I initially applied for the Customer Service Representative for the NAFTA team but I was contacted by a member of HR to ask if I would be interested in the Account Administrator role as they felt my qualifications and experience better suited this role. I was delighted with the offer and completed a brief telephone interview followed by online assessments then a face to face interview. I was very happy with the process overall as I was kept fully informed all the way and felt it was handled effectively and very efficiently.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stockton-on-Tees, England

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Huntsman Corp (Stockton-on-Tees, England) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I sent my CV and cover letter via an online Job search site. The following day somebody from the HR team called me and make the typical questions: Why you want to work in here? Would you be able to move to the UK? (at that moment I was not living there); What do you find interesting about the role and the company?

    After the call she made arrangements for an external company to assess my level of Italian language. It took a while the company to call me but at the end they send me a brief about how the situation was going to be. An Italian person called me and we made like his delivery was delayed and they were in a rush to receive the goods. At the end I offer a discount so the interviewer was really happy with that.

    The following day they offer me a face to face interview in the UK. They send me all the flights and hotel reservations to have an interview as soon as possible. I had one hour interview with the Customer Services Manager and a previous Team Lead. Both of them were really polite with me and made things really conformable. I had to prepare there a role playing with a small situation that they gave me. A person called me and made like he was an angry customer and I offer him a solution for his problem. The person on the phone was quite polite to me so it was not really difficult. After that, competency based questions were made (typical ones, nothing really surprising).

    The same day I flew back home and somebody from HR called me offering me the position about 2 days later. After this I had to complete some personality test but not really difficult and the job offer was already made I was required to start in 2 months so all was smooth and fine. I had to attend some medical controls (quite long about 3 hours) before joining the company.

    Interview

    I had an interview tuesday at one and i recieved an email from the HR representative at five past one apologizing and canceling the interview because she had to attend another meeting. In her email she asked if it would be possible for me to do the interview the next day. I answered her email, and never heard back from them. I just can not believe that an international company dies this kind of things.

    Interview

    Very brief phone call with HR and the PD Chemist who I would be reporting to in the job. Few questions by HR asking about my skills and abilities and 2 technical questions by the PD Chemist. Seems like they were only interested in my technical expertise and abilities and didnt really want to get to know me at all.
