    Quick fire scenarios..answer go on to next question, cut you off at times...interesting concept, overall very dry and very neutral. No idea how things went, doing 2 phone interviews is not great business, need face to face.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Bridgestone Americas in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I obtained the interview through a temp agency. The temp agency already knew me but presented the job to me and asked if I would be interested. I agreed and they set up the interview. The interview itself was pretty standard. Where are you from? What do you know about the company? Any questions? I was interviewed by two people. Both were easy going and one I would actually work directly with. In addition to the verbal interview I was also given a Level 1 tech test to complete.

    Interview Questions
    • The test, while not difficult, did pose a challenge in that I was able to find better troubleshooting steps than what was provided.   Answer Question
