    I have been working at Albemarle as an intern for less than a year


    Great place to intern as a chemical engineering student. Was given lots of projects and space to complete them with reasonable independence. The people in south haven were great to work with and seemed to balance work and life well.


    Locations can be remote. Human Resources department is terrible. The operators seemed to be working a lot of over time but the engineers did not seem stressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new HR department period, it is embarrassing how bad it is. I was only an intern for 3 months so no input on the overall business trend or long term vs short term strategies.

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Albemarle in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by Albemarle for an interview. I was flown down to Baton Rouge. I gave a talk and was interviewed by hiring managers. Interviews were mostly conversations. It was a great experience, the hiring managers very friendly. Company culture awesome. Wasn't offered a job but would recommend working here.
