What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
I would advise that you demonstrate a good degree of technical knowledge, be it in chemical engineering or in your field of work (for me it was Supply Chain), and show a deep interest in working in a manufacturing background. I would also suggest gaining prior work experience in the manufacturing sector, and it would be highly beneficial if you could show some sort of continuous improvement project work (be it in your degree or in a previous place of work).
Do you have any interview tips?
Be prepared for some questions which might seem inapplicable to your position as a recent graduate - I was asked if how a project I had completed at university had contributed to a company's bottom line (!) Also be prepared for quite a rigorous interview process which may seem daunting - I had 4 managers in the room asking me questions for what seemed like hours!
