    Interview

    The hiring process is easy. It's pretty much straight forward if you know how to work on a car or if you don't. Really flexible hours. Because a lot of people don't like to work on cars.

    Recruited on campus and then asked to fly to Akron, OH (HQ) for another round of interviews. 4 rounds over 4 hour span. Basic behavioral/situational questions with upper management.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview

    I applied online and did not hear back for a month. I then got a notification that I was no longer in the running for the position. I then received a call from the recruiter telling me that was an error. I then had an online behavioral test followed by a hour long behavioral phone interview. I then met with the hiring manager. A few days later I met with another associate. After all of this I was given an interview at headquarters and met with various people regarding the position. I was then given an offer days later. Process took close to 4 months.

    Interview

    Interview went really well but later found out that want was promised in the interview was misleading just to get you in the door.

    Interview Questions

    • None but they should ask you are you ready to work here 6 days a week and have no life outside of here. Oh and we are open 7 days a week and don't answer phone on your days off cause they will call you in   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Don't do it

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview

    Talked to recruiters at a campus career fair, got an interview the next day. Interviewed with a process engineer and another long-time engineer. Both were very nice and personable, the interview didn't feel intimidating. They started by asking about my resume and experience and then moved to a more behavioral interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard behavioral questions: Tell us about a time when you solved a problem in a unique way, etc.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Had another offer, wasn't very attracted to Akron
