    Sales Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Interviews were very structured and quick. When the company wants to make something happen, or even if there are hiccups, the company will work hard to accommodate your requests. I would suggest the interviewer be prepared to ask a lot of questions to sniff out the challenges of the job prior to accepting an offer.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Saint-Gobain in January 2014.

    The whole interview process with Saint-Gobain was a good experience. The recruiter followed up with me frequently to ensure I was being contacted by others to keep the process moving. While it took about two months to get through the interviewing prior to offer, it was done well.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Saint-Gobain.

    Interview Details

    Speed interview. Half day with 2 other candidates. Started at 7:30am, required to give a 20-30 min presentation 4 times back to back to various groups. Next was a tour of the campus and then lunch. All went very fast. Barely had time to ask questions as I was presenting or answered them most of the time. There was a host who followed me all day which helped a lot. Generally people were exceptionally nice. No curveball questions. Had an answer back in 3 business days.

    Shipping Coordinator Interview

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

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Saint-Gobain in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    People were friendly, realistic and down-to-earth. It was a comfortable interview and felt like the right fit. I met with people from 3 different departments and was excited about the prospects for growth within the company. I received a call-back fairly quickly and got started right away. The people there are knowledgeable and care about their work- they just want to see that you'll also care about what they do there.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions about times where I had solved a problem or how I interact with difficult people. Having not had much experience yet, I had to stretch to think of situations that fit.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Saint-Gobain in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very slow and deliberate process that started with recruiter phone interview; followed by phone interviews with potential managers; followed by 1/2-day group interviews; finished with an interview with Plant Manager. Very slow process that at times I wondered if they were even interested.

    Interview Questions
    • No surprises in terms of questions - not gotchas; focused on cultural fit; team work; problem solving; and being able to handle a slow but deliberate moving company- patience.   Answer Question

    I found this job posted on-line. It was posted for months and I didn't apply because I wasnt' familiar with the company and then I saw it on a government job board and took a closer look at the company and discovered how large and established they are. I interviewed at the plant I work at now and with and with two groups of people plus a video conference interview with individuals from Europe.

    • Nothing out of the ordinary, I'd interviewed at Amazon and REI before this and it was a great change of pace that they just talked to me honestly about my experience instead of asking trick questions.   Answer Question
