Compound Engineer Interview

I applied online and interviewed at Cooper Tire & Rubber.

Interview Details – I was contacted for a initial HR screening through phone. This was a general getting to know the candidate interview & was asked to explain at technical term to the HR. The very same day I got a call to interview with the hiring manager who was extremely rude & felt like he wasn't interested in hiring anyone at all. 5 weeks later I got an email from the HR saying the position has been closed.

Production Worker (Pool) Interview

Production Worker (Pool)
Texarkana, TX

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Cooper Tire & Rubber in February 2011.

Interview Details – The online application process was initially broken, so I submitted a paper application that was seemingly ignored for a nearly 2 months.

Eventually I tried applying online again, and got an e-mail stating they'd like a phone interview with me. I scheduled it online. I had the phone interview the same day and was called back immediately afterward, saying I had passed and they'd like to set up the next interview, which was the in-person interview.

The interview at the facility was between me and two other people. One of them I don't recall speaking but they both took notes as far as I remember.

I was told I'd know within 10 days whether I'd be hired. I wondered why it would take that long but tried to keep my hopes up. On the 10th day from the interview (Sunday, so non-business days count) I received an automated e-mail stating that I had been passed over to pursue other candidates.

They knew my qualifications and everything else from my application and the phone interview. I wonder why they bothered with an in-person interview if I wasn't qualified. I think my age (19) led them to believe I was not serious about a career with them, though I tried to convince them otherwise during the interview. It's a shame I got rejected, as I think I would've made a great employee, being a healthy young adult who could handle the physical demands of the job.

They told me everyone starts at $13.00 per hour.

MRO Buyer Interview

MRO Buyer
Tupelo, MS

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Cooper Tire & Rubber in June 2009.

Interview Details – 1)Search the Cooper Tire website for a position and location you desire, apply online and fill out the questionnaire(which is sent to a third party recruiter). 2)If selected, they will follow up with a phone interview with third party recruiter. 3) If selected, you will be notified by the third part recruiter to make an appointment for and in person interview at the specified plant. 4)If the in person interview goes well, you will either make another appointment to meet with several other managers such as the plant manager and the plant engineer.....thats as far as I got. I was told that the interview was "perfect" and couldn't have gone any better! A month later, and several check backs with the recruiter, I had no answer and no offer. After another month, I received an e-mail from the recruiter that simply stated that I "was not selected."

Interview Question – What was a difficult time you experienced in managing others, in your last position, and how did you overcome it?   View Answer
