    Interview

    Interview process was quick & simple. Only interviewed one manager. My recruiter told me last minute, but that's typical in contract roles. I was excited to enter the market research world and was certainly looking forward to it. My manager was very chill and made me feel very comfortable. She spent most of the time just explaining to me how the job would be.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Symrise (Jacksonville, FL (US)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I applied through my college's career website and was selected for an on campus interview. The on-campus interview was fairly straight forward and they asked mostly behavior questions and asked more about what was on my resume. A week later I was invited to an on-site interview in Jacksonville, FL. The on-site was a full day of interviews and they took you out to lunch with some of the current process and production engineers there. The questions were also behavioral based and they asked questions that were on my resume. It seemed that they wanted to get a better sense of your personality and how you handle situations.

    Vice President Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Teterboro, NJ (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Symrise (Teterboro, NJ (US)) in May 2010.

    Interview

    First interview was with two hiring managers, half hour each. This was fairly traditional and I didn't get a good feel for the company at this point. It probably didn't help that I was at a competitor in a competitive position.
    My second interview lasted 3 hours, with another senior manager. I connected well with this person, and learned what I needed to know to assess the opportunity.
    The whole process moved very quickly; they make up their minds and move. Indicative of decisive leadership which has turned out to be the case.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Symrise.

    Interview

    HR was relatively fast in scheduling for an interview. Interview was intriguing as the interviewer shared a lot of information regarding to Symrise and their structure. Other than the technical supervisor, the director was also there for the interview. It is expected of the candidates to be aware of certain technical terms used in the flavor/fragrance industry.

    A lot of information and insights gained from the interview session.
