Cons

The corporate organization is wierd at best. Often times managers will preside over groups working on tasks completely outside their wheelhouse. They know little about the groups efforts and it's

Advice to Management

Every 3-5 years management gets bored and re-orgs. So much effort is wasted. Try to make a plan and stick with it for a decade.

    Process Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lake Jackson, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dow (Lake Jackson, TX) in May 2021

    Interview

    First you're in a room with other people. They go over a little bit of the company's history pay and benefits. Then you take the ACT test. This test doesn't make much sense. They say it's for critical thinking but that's a stretch. It asks 34 questions and you have 54 mins to finish. My issue is that only 5 questions were related to a process operator. 10 were common sense. Like which tool is the best for the job or the proper way to use this tool. The rest were how to fix a motor on a conveyor belt. The best place to install a pipe on a golf course. What does this part on a solar panel do? How much antifreeze should use mixed with water if the temp drops to -15 degrees. You invented this electric car how do you make it work properly if this happens? I wanted to raise my hand and ask, Do you need a process operator or a mechanic/plumber/electrician/engineer? Because I don't remember taking any of these classes when I got my degree. I just took this test and now waiting to hear back in 2 weeks.
    Interview

    I haven't gotten to that part because I wanted to give people a heads up on that test. I'm not sure you can study it. I guess you could by learning all the trades I mentioned.
