I applied online - interviewed at Ball Corporation in June 2013.
Interview Details –
I have been interviewing at numerous companies in the Denver/Boulder area over the past few weeks and Ball was one of the most unprofessional companies I worked with. I found a job on Lew's list (an email distribution with accounting and finance jobs) and was called in for an interview within a few days of applying. The interview went quite well. They had me interview with a panel of three people, including the hiring manager, the temporary manager, and the corporate recruiter. They went through the position and then asked me questions about my background. They also asked SAR (situation, action, result) type questions, but they were very simplistic. At the end of the interview the hiring manager said she thought I had a great background and her only concern was I would get bored with the work because I had done many of the tasks assigned to the role.
I did not hear back from Ball for about a week and a half. I had to call the corporate recruiter to get any sort of feedback. She explained that they were still interviewing and would get back to me. Less than a week later the job was posted a SECOND time on Lew's list looking for more candidates. At this point I heard nothing from them in regards to no longer being considered. I called the recruiter and asked if this meant I was no longer being considered. She explained that they were just expanding their search and really had very little to say as I think she realized it's unprofessional to have people come in for an interview and repost a job without first communicating their disqualification. At that time she said I was still being considered. It has been almost two months since my initial interview and I have not heard back from Ball. I have not attempted to contact them and have accepted a position elsewhere.
I have no issues with rejection, but feel the way Ball handled their interview process was very unprofessional. If someone comes in to the office and spends over an hour interviewing a formal rejection (any sort of communication!) is expected.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ball Corporation in August 2012.
Interview Details –
I connected with HR through an inside contact. Then I had a couple of screening interviews with HR Recruiter to see where I could fit in their Internship program. After a couple of days, they informed me that they would fly me to Colorado for on-site interviews. It was around Spring Break so we easily coordinated a time for the trip.
On that day, I had four 1:1 interviews separated by an on-site lunch with an Internship Recruiter. Each interview took one hour, 2 with HR and 2 with hiring managers. Overall, people are very friendly and informative. Questions asked were behavioral and were about my experience. After the interviews, they told me they would contact me soon. I got the offer after one week.
Interview Question – I told the financial manager that I did a case write-up in my Accounting class about AT&T so he asked "Why AT&T changed how they account their pension plans?" Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. They informed me about the offer and officially sent it a couple of hours later.

Interview Details –
Initial interview was over the phone with the hiring manager. This went very well and hiring manager indicated there may be a potential fit with multiple openings, if not for the position that was applied for. I indicated openness to finding the right fit.
In-person interview was scheduled about three weeks later. It was a behavioral-based group interview that lasted about 90 minutes. Interviewed with hiring manager, three peers of the position and one internal customer. Things seemed to go quite well. I never heard back. There was no further communication at all. Not an email. Not a phone call.
Interview Question – Tell us about a situation where you delivered a solution that changed the way people in your company did their jobs. Answer Question
Very Difficult Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Ball Corporation in June 2011.
Interview Details – I was interviewed by 5 people, one from out of country. The interview consisted of behavioral questions and each person took a turn asking questions and then documenting my answers. The interview was very congenial. I would suggest that anyone interviewing with any company, anywhere, do as much research about the company as possible. Don't just know history about the company, be aware of what they are currently working on. This was the "one that got away".
