Chemical Engineer Interview

Chemical Engineer
Akron, OH

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed 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.

Engineer Interview

Engineer
Akron, OH

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Goodyear in May 2009.

Interview Details – Overall a very basic interview. There were a few "star" type interview questions. The interviewer asked one question and told me to take "10 minutes to think about the answer" and we proceeded to sit in silence until he allowed me to answer - I was cut off when i tried to start early. The interviewer seemed very nervous and did not speak english well. Overall it gave me a poor impression of the company and I left the interview knowing I did not want to work for them.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to use teamwork to accomplish a goal.   Answer Question

Senior Materials Scientist Interview

Senior Materials Scientist
Akron, OH

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed 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.
