    Project Manager Interview

    Interview

    Confusion and apathy are the most appropriate words for this place. Had multiple reschedules for a phone screen. For every reschedule, the recruiter asked for my contact information. When I was called for an onsite interview, eventually after 2 months of going back and forth, it was rescheduled yet again and the people interviewing me kept on changing. I had read reviews earlier of reductions in their workforce and saw it first hand when I arrived on location. Nobody was available at the main door. You had to call the first interviewer to come collect you. The office was dull and drab at best in a dilapidated old building over 100 years old. One of the interviewer actually complained about the work load they have. The people working there gave a sense of disinterest and gloominess. I would have rejected the offer in any case, just based on my observations of the location and the people around. They neither got back with an offer nor an explanation of what did not work.

    GOLD Associate Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Avery Dennison (Cleveland, OH) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The initial interview was done with a lot professionalism but in a friendly atmosphere. I was then flown out to Ohio for the group interview. This was very different then all other interviews I attended. You feel like your a fish in a fishbowl and they are watching your every move. The two days get at how you work with people and not so much on your skill-set. My advice is to get out of your comfort zone and get to know the people there because that is what they are looking for.

    Reasons for Declining

    I received a better offer from another company. Avery Dennison does not focus on being environmentally friendly and I wanted to work for a more responsible company.
