    I worked at Huntsman Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good culture. They are really trying to do things right, both in the company and outside it. Good atmosphere and team environment, for the most part. They do want to develop within -although this does appear to be words more than action. Good salary, pension and holidays. You feel good working for Huntsman, proud to work there.

    Cons

    Execution of promoting and developing internal talent is not actioned as strongly as their words and internal documents suggest they would like to be. But this is an area for development. There's a of leaders who need to develop being an actual leader and inspiring action, however this appears to be a big focus on their external recruitment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on developing internal talent. Live the words.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I didnt need to negotiate as I was very happy with the package offered.
