Retail Development Specialist Interview

Retail Development Specialist

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Goodyear.

Interview Details – 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. They are trying to gauge your ability to think quickly about situations and looking specifically for you to explain the "Situation/Action/Result"

Interview Question – Not really anything specific.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation for me. My first offer that blew the others out of the water coming out of school.

Sales Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and interviewed at Goodyear.

Interview Details – 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 Question – Have you ever dealt with someone you did not get along with? What happened?   Answer Question

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Goodyear in September 2013.

Interview Details – I was contact through a third party hiring firm based on my Monster.com Resume. After a couple weeks and a Webex Interview, I was given an onsite interview in Akron. The company flew me out for a full day interview which included 2 one on ones, some team building exercises. Also included was a plant walkthrough to see the process of tires actually being created. Definitely my favorite interview that I've had thus far.

Interview Question – What are the three most important things when designing a low resistance tire.   View Answer

Engineer Interview

Engineer

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Goodyear.

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

Reason for Declining – Had another offer, wasn't very attracted to Akron

Very Easy Interview

Mechanical Engineer Interview

Mechanical Engineer
Topeka, KS

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Goodyear in January 2011.

Interview Details – My interview process consisted of a screening agency doing a phone interview. About a week later I received a call from the plant which was hiring and asked to come down for an on site interview. The onsite interview began with a plant tour where the guide asked very informal questions. I then met with the engineering superintendent who and the engineering manager. All in all it lasted maybe 3 hours.

Negotiation Details – I negotiated a signing bonus, they seemed very firm on the annual salary.

Average Interview

Financial Analyst Interview

Akron, OH

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Goodyear in August 2012.

Interview Details – Very comfortable interview process. Recruited at local university where initial interviews were held, then attended HQ for second-rounds.
