    Professional - Corp Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview Details

    Applied online (make sure to copy your answers to a word document - the form is wonky and my answers kept disappearing). After about two weeks, I was scheduled through recruiting company for a 30 min. phone interview. On the phone screening, the team mentioned wanting to move quickly (decision within two weeks). I followed up after two weeks since I didn't hear anything and was told there were no decisions made with the position yet. That was nearly two months ago and I haven't heard anything since (not even a note that they were pursuing other candidates). Pretty poor lack of communication.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too unexpected. General skill set and experience questions on the initial screening call.   Answer Question

    Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hebron, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Hebron, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Goodyear in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    This was a great site with info for my interview, so I should share.
    Applied online (1.5hrs) via a link from college.
    3.5hrs later I got an email to take a proctored online test (1.5hrs).
    Took test on Friday morning, got a call first thing Monday, scheduled a 3person phone interview for that afternoon.
    Phone interview: LOTS of behavioral questions, plus the 2minute sell-yourself speech. (Both of which I failed as bad as the test I took) BE PREPARED, know your resume and be ready to explain it to them in detail without being asked any side questions!
    Amazingly, for failling everything so far I was invited to s 5hr "meet&greet" the following monday.
    Meet & Greet:
    there we 6 applicants, but only 4 showed up. DO NOT Wear a suit jacket, it would be overkill. I was the only person with a tie besides a GY engineer. Be ready for a full on psych observation from 16-20 people. 1/4 HR, 1/4 GY Senior Engineers, 1/4 Team you will be working with, 1/4 unknown.
    2 45minute interviews, both just me with an HR and with GY top Engineer, so a 2on1.
    The rest of the time was non-stop questions. BE SO READY FOR MANY BEHAVIORAL QUESTIONS!!!!!! Bring a pen & pad.
    I also failed this horribly. Never been asked so many behavioral questions in my life combined!

    Great people! Would have been a great job in Hebron Ohio at the new R&D plant.
    The pay was never given.

    Interview Questions
    • To many to think! Be ready for non-stop "tell us about a time when...." If you stall they note, it's hard.   View Answer

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Smith, AR
    Anonymous Employee in Fort Smith, AR
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Goodyear in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had a 20 minute phone interview with company recruiter. They called me back about a week later to set up an in person interview. The in person interview went as follows:
    1) 30 minutes talking with department director and IT manager
    2) 45 minutes talking with IT manager and and a senior developer - The questions were a combination of technical and behavioral
    3) 1 hour being grilled by three more developers with all sorts of technical questions
    4) 1.5 hours to complete a 6 or 7 page written "test" that the developers had put together

    Interview Questions
    • It was just the shear number of questions from many different people. This was a 3 hour long interview with questions from start to finish. It was tiring and seemed like way overkill.   Answer Question

    Quality Engineering Co-op Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview Details

    It took almost 2 months to set up first interview. The first interview itself was a video conference interview. It was a panel of two, both from Quality Control department. They were friendly and listened to all the answers patiently. The interview covered most of the behavioral questions such as my plan for next five years, am I comfortable working in a team or not, what is the most difficult situation I have faced, what is the most tricky decision I have taken etc. They did not go much in the technical stuff. The interview lasted for over 45 minutes. They forgot to ask my availability in the interview so I received a mail from the HR department for the same. I provided my availability and did not receive any reply from them.

    Interview Questions
    • There were none. All the questions were simple and of the kind that one would expect in the first interview.   Answer Question

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview Details

    Apply the position on campus. Take the interview on Friday and get the rejection email on Sunday. The interview is held in University's career center.

    Interview Questions
    • Almost all the behavior questions are related to "teamwork". Keep asking me what should I do if teammates don't make contributions. I thought they should ask questions related to other aspects such as leadership, ability of dealing with emergency, etc. I'm quite surprised that several behavior questions in a row are all related to teamwork.   Answer Question

    New Ventures Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Goodyear in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a Senior Recruiter, at The RightThing (an ADP company) for a position with Goodyear Tire and Rubber company. Since the opportunity seemed interesting, I agreed to explore it further and sent him my resume. The recruiter even asked me to fill out the online application and this is where the unprofessional experience began.

    The way the online application system was set up caused me to attempt to complete the application at least 3 times. Apparently Goodyear or The RightThing do not have the internal staff to test that their system works.

    When I pointed out the glitch, to the recruiter in our phone conversation, his response to me was - "how convenient". This should have been a flag to me to stop the process at this point.

    However, this recruiter is persistent and calls me a couple of times, without warning, and asks that I try to fill the extremely long application again and we do this 2 or 3 times before they figure out that their system has a problem. Again this should have prompted me to stop the process immediately.

    After the phone screen, I was informed by the recruiter that he will be forwarding my resume to the hiring manager and that he will let me know the next step.

    Anyway- After I have jumped through the hoops, to apply for an opportunity that seemed interesting, i get an automated email saying that they are pursuing other candidates. I am ok with not being the right candidate for the job but what I am not OK with is the manner in which the whole process was conducted.

    In summary: The recruiter (and by relation The RightThing and Goodyear) did not leave a positive impression in my mind about how they conduct their hiring process. I felt like I was used to fill a certain quota of applicants for a position to help justify the work done by the recruiter. This to me is a learning experience that might be valuable to others applying for opportunities or might be contacted for opportunities to ensure that your time is not wasted and to appropriately pick on the signals that serve as warnings before proceeding.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions asked by the recruiter were standard and the length of the phone screen should have been a warning. The entire process was very unprofessional.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goodyear in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    My first contact with Goodyear came at a career fair at my school. I talked to the recruiters and was offered an interview for the next day. By that Friday I found out I was invited to the headquarters in Akron for a second round interview that was scheduled to occur the next week. When I got there I had four interview each of them scheduled to last 30 minutes. It was very relaxed. I went in expecting a lot of technical questions, but I wasn't asked any. Two of the interviewers asked behavioral questions and the other two asked me questions based off my past experiences. (Haven't heard back yet, its been 3 days)

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goodyear in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I responded to an ad on a classifieds website and gave them a call. They told me to come in and fill out an application. Drove about 20 miles to get there and once I arrived they handed me an application. Before then pen even touched the application I was then asked if I had my own tools and that I must also be certified. Their ad said nothing about needing your own tools and the ad stated that they would train me to be certified as a state inspector. I told them I had neither and the application was snatched from my hands.
