    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Goodyear in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to apply the position (in 12/11), soon after I was asked to take an online tests, which evaluated my ability to perform under situations of conflict. After a two month wait I got a call for a phone interview, in which they asked questions like what is innovation, do you have reengineering experience, do you have cross cultural experience, how do you manage a situation when you have give priority one project over another? I think thhis phase of the selection was done by Rightthing inc based in Findlay, OH, who must be contractors to Goodyear. After the interview I was told I will get a result within a week, but within few seconds I was asked to fill the corporate recruitment form. After filling the form and waiting for another couple of months, I get an email message saying my background doesn't fit their business needs. Good, they invite a person to apply and take four months doesn't meet theit requirements. I don't what kinfd of people work there

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goodyear in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got an e-mail immediately asking me to take an online assessment, after clearing that, got an e-mail the next day asking to schedule a phone interview. Went to the online website and scheduled appointments (looked like some third party company does this for Goodyear). two days later I did the phone interview at the scheduled time. The interviewer clearly mentioned that she will be writing down my answers as I respond. The interviewer went through my resume, education, previous work experience etc., in detail. Then asked me 1 or 2 HR questions regarding leading a team and handling problems. Concluded with some job specific questions, if I had any experience with some job specific functions. Asked me to monitor my e-mail regarding further steps in the process. Has been a week. No response yet.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Goodyear in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online about 2 months ago and almost forgot about it. Then I received a phone call asking me to schedule an interview online with different time options. Then on the day of interview, a HR called to ask all behavior questions. The interview lasted for about 30minutes and you don't have chance to ask questions. Then you received another email asking you to fill in some information. After 7 days, I called to check my status and I was told I was going to have a face to face interview and I should look out for my emails. However, I did not receive any email so I called a couple of days later and I was told that the position had already been filled.
