    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nalco Champion.

    Interview

    The entire process was through my university career fair/career center. They signed me up for the interview while talking with them at the career fair for the next day. Heard back from them very quickly (within 1 week after the interview). Did not get an offer, but was glad they got back quickly.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no very difficult difficult questions. It was all behavioral questions. The only one that caught me a little off guard was "tell me about a time you planned for something to go perfectly, but ended up going completely wrong."   Answer Question

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baton Rouge, LA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nalco Champion (Baton Rouge, LA (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    First phase was going to lunch with a different district manager than the one that hirerd me. This particular DM was very professional and technically savvy surrounding this career field. Very well formatted questions were asked and the lunch ended up being a very laid back, technical and business discussion. The second phase was having lunch with a different DM, whom actually hired me, along with 2 members of upper management within the organization. These individuals were very nice and welcoming. We had open discussions regarding my experiences and work practices of my former company versus practices of Nalco. They very much enjoyed my company and expressed just that. I felt the same and looked forward to working with these professionals on some level. Their decision to hire me was immediate and openly indicated. Interviews here can be as open and comfortable as you allow them to be. I do like how they typically have you interview with not only the DM, but also at least 2 members of higher management, to ensure you are a fit for this opportunity.

    Technical Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn, AL (US)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nalco Champion (Auburn, AL (US)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The initial interview was very laid back and didn't feel like and interview. Just asked the generic interview questions and a few things about my co-op experience and involvement in college.

    The second interview was even more laid back, met with a sales engineer and he showed me what he would do on a daily basis.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Went to the office and interviewed with about 3 different managers. Each interview was about 25 to 30 minutes and was behavioral with a few technical questions. Most of the interviewers were relatable so if you got along you ended up talking about similarities you both like and was casual.
