    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cooper Tire & Rubber (Findlay, OH).

    Interview

    I thought that the HR team at Cooper Tire and Rubber Company was pretty well organized and had everything setup and ready to go on time. During the interview process, you were able to speak to a variety of different positions including : VP of Finance, Plant Controller, Senior Accountant, HR Manager, and Manager of the SOX Department. Overall, the interview was like most other interviews in that you get asked several Behavioral based questions along with personal conversation.

    • During the interview process, I think the most difficult was with the Controller, he asked very technical questions that I was not expecting however, if you are right for the position the questions were easily answerable   Answer Question

    Be sure to read over the offer letter and make sure that it is what you are seeking.

    Interview

    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.

    Engineer I Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cooper Tire & Rubber (Findlay, OH) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I was recruited away from my previous job, The company relies heavily on outside recruiters that so all the ground work for them, so your first contact will probably be with someone speaking on behalf of the company but not an employee. After the initial screening interview with the recruiter, the next step in my case was a phone interview with the hiring manager and the most senior buy in the team (both interviewing me over the phine), and the interview took over 30 minutes (very detailed and chalenging questions). The next step was a face of face interview, and that was actually three different panel interviews on the same day (one with the hiring manager, one with three of the team members, and one with a department manager and MSM).

    Interview Questions

    • A technical question about statistical correlation and multicolinearity.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiated through the recruiter. The first offer was much lower than what I was making, then the second offer was at the same level, but they added a sign in bonus.
