    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dart Container in June 2015.

    Interview

    After I put an application online, I got a phone call from a recruiter (recruiter 1 )3 weeks later. The phone call was to confirm a phone interview with another recruiter (recruiter 2), and I was asked to fill out an information form online about personal information, education, experience, etc. Phone interview with Recruiter 2 had a lot interesting questions (about 45 minutes). All the questions are basically about: * resume/background. For example: Why choose to attend X school? Why choose Y major? Are you satisfied with your GPA? Best and worst part of working at Z company? * scenario/math problems. For example: What are the components of manufacturing costs? If the costs of a product reduced 20%, how much should we reduce the price? etc.10-15 questions in total. * salary expectations, availability, relocation, etc. Then I asked a few questions about the position and the company, and the next steps of the hiring process.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Dart Container (Coral Springs, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Is ridiculous, they first test you, with a silly IQ logical test, if you pass it, they test you with a mid level difficulty, Excel test. If you pass it you obtain your first interview From this point things get way way more silly. Interview # 1 is a 3 hour interrogation about everything you have ever done in your career, favorites classes in College, what was the name of your dog when you were 6, etc etc the H.R person will write down in a notebook word by word, so you cant even talk at your normal speed. "First... I .. went... to" I personally would have preferred going to jury duty than this. After round 1, they want 2 of your past bosses,to fill a 50 question survey about you via email. and 3 co-workers also. They call it reference check??? if you pass that, they email you to build them a presentation of how they can increase their sales in the next 3 years aaaaand present it to them on round #2 Round 2 is another 3 hour sit down where they also ask you to show them projects you have done in the past and present to a room full of people your idea of how to help them increase sales. This hands down has been the most ridiculous interview process i have ever experienced. I felt like I would be working for NASA or the Secret Service. To make things worse, their base salary is the lowest any company has ever offered me to do the same job approximately 15% oless than the lowest I have ever been paid in my career. "They are looking for a Rock star that will perform for a cup full of spare change" After 6 hours of interviews , Tests, reference history, project development and presentation. The H.R rep told my recruiter that they liked another candidate more. but kept all my past projects and the business plan I developed for them, unbelievable. Please do not submit your self to this ridiculous process because, even if you do get hired, every other company will pay you allot more to do the same job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Dart Container (Mason, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    SAP Position. Half of the questions are NOT behavior questions. I got interview from two different teams. They use WebEx. Always on Friday. The recruiter from the second team can not access the microphone of WebEx (Can't believe it……), 5 min later they decided to postpone the interview. On the job description, there is no specific team information, but in the interview, both recruiter from two teams asked questions like "We are xxx team, there is no background on your resume, tell me why you have interest in this position ?"……Definitely, you can not answer you have no interest in their position, then you have to try to give them a reason, and after that they would ask you a lot of very detailed questions regarding specific concept on the textbook or things you would record on your notes, rather than remember in your mind everyday. The whole interview let me feel they do not care or respect what you did from your previous experience (I do have SAP experience). After the interview, you just got a feeling - why there is so many things I do not know! Seems like they forget no body no everything regarding SAP! The whole interview process is just waste of my time.

    Interview Questions

    • I would like to share xxx screen with you by using WebEx, please show me how to do xxx……10 sec later, that guy was unable to share the screen……and he skip this question……   Answer Question

    Interview

    I got through all 3 interviews for them to tell my recruiter, that they decided not to fill the position. A 1hr phone interview, a 3 hour HR interview and another 3 hour interview, with 4 people sitting in on it. A waste of my time, my recruiters time and their companies time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Dart Container.

    Interview

    The ladies I spoke with on the phone were very pleasant and professional. The problem I have with this company is how they handled the interview. I was scheduled to come to the location for round 2 of interviews and I was contacted and informed that the hiring manager had something come up and needed to reschedule. Fair enough, life happens. So the recruiter contacts me and let's me know that they will be in contact to reschedule the following week. Well, instead of rescheduling, they send me the "no thanks" email. This I took to be very rude and unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dart Container (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It is a wired company, and it is very unprofessional. First, they never call you on time they scheduled, and even call you 1 hour before the time set. And you can never call back successfully. I received my design test, and did a lot of things for it. Everything went well before you submit your work, but once you submit it. They will never reply your email. Even they will not tell you whether they received it. It made me feel like they are steal your ideas for developing their product. Because compared to other design test, this company give the most assignments. They want you to give everything to them, research, persona, wireframes, ui, storyboard for their product. This is absolutely the worst company I have met.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions are easy. Just normal questions. But the second step is a lit bit hard. Compared to other design test, this company gave the most assignments. They want you to give everything to them, research, persona, wireframes, ui, storyboard for their product.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dart Container (Lansing, MI).

    Interview

    Three interviews. First pretty laidback, asked a couple off-the-cuff math questions that are easy with paper but requires quick thinking if you're not math-enabled. Included a timed 120 questions computer test to test pattern, word association, and math ability. Second was with two people (first wasn't) Was generally friendly, but there seemed to be a couple mildly hostile probing that might have been meant to test reactions. Standard abstract thinking math questions to see how you arrived at a rough estimate of a figure. Explored my resume (review it!). Also had a hour long pricing test at the end the had you utilize excel and word to solve a noise-laden pricing problem.

    Interview Questions

    • Some questions were probing and I felt that I should have defended my position more.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I applied for the position and didn't hear back for an interview for 4 months. The rest of the process was pretty usual, phone screening, then a video interview because I wasn't in the area. I had to decline at this point because I was leaving for a trip to go abroad once I had graduated.
