    Current Employee - Process Engineer in South Haven, MI (US)

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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Applied through my school's career center. Received an on-campus interview with a senior engineer. The interview was all behavioral, but not question-oriented. The enigineer and I basically had a 40 minute chat about various aspects of my resume, the company, and the job.
