    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Johnson Matthey in July 2015.

    Interview

    They went through my resume background, and they digged more about my experience based on that. There are two people interviewed me, they were both team members of the hiring position. The hiring manager didn't show up. It was a very casual interview, the interviewers are nice and friendly. It is not like a typical formal interview. Overall is great experience

    Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA (US)
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Johnson Matthey (Boston, MA (US)) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Interview, what interview. I was contacted and a phone interview was set up. Performed all my preparations; research, questions, reviewed my work history to align with the position, but when the time came for the interview, no call came, nothing. No notice of cancelation was given and after waiting 30 minutes I messaged in that I was not contacted & did not receive a notice of cancelation or a rescheduled time. I waited a week for a response before calling in again. When I did I got conflicting reasons for the “no call, no notice” and was told I would be contacted again. Later I was contacted by email and got additional conflicting messages along with the news of my cancelation and was informed that the position will not be filled. If this is how they treat job seekers during “the great recession” I can only imagine how they treat their employees once they are on-board.

    Process Control Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wayne, PA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Johnson Matthey (Wayne, PA (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Just gave them my resume at the career fair, received an e-mail asking for an interview and a plant tour. It was very laid back and we just kind of joked around with the HR people and some of the other engineers. I really enjoyed talking to all of them. They were a lot of fun. I did 2 one on one interviews with two different engineers and they were both fun to talk to.
