    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Eastman Kodak (Rochester, NY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very efficient. The HR recruiter got in touch with me within days of applying online and a phone interview was set up as per my convenience. The manager whom I would be working for interviewed me for about 45 minutes and it was very pleasant. The manager called me up a couple of days later and notified me that I was hired.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were mostly HR type and one question that I was a little confused with : How would you react if your manager asks you to do something which is clearly an over expectation of your skill-set in an unrealistic deadline ?   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Eastman Kodak (Rochester, NY) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the hiring manager, but he had already picked a person he wanted. So he was hardly listening during the interview. I tried to at least provide some information so he would know what I was capable of doing, more as a networking opportunity, but he didn't seem to be receptive to that.

    Interview Questions

    • No real difficult question because he had already picked someone else.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Eastman Kodak (Rochester, NY) in March 2009.

    Interview

    OK interview, nothing out of the ordinary. They use a panel approach with canned question trying to assess future performance based on past experience. There were 6 panel members, several with their own agenda...I learned later that they had their own candidate (friend) that had applied and wanted to skew the assessment in favor of the friend.

    Senior Engineering Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dayton, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Eastman Kodak (Dayton, OH) in August 2008.

    Interview

    As a current employee of the company, I was already familiar with the hiring process. However, I wasn't exactly expecting to be treated as a new hire. I interviewed with the program manager, team leader, two engineers, one technician and the HR manager. That's a lot of talking, sitting, listening and thinking - over a three hour period with no breaks. You should be prepared to answer a lot of the same questions and be honest - these guys don't mess around because the interview process is just as time consuming and stressful for them. The interviewers will collaborate after the meetings and make decisions based on your education, your past or present work experience, your answers and confidence in your abilities. Should you be an employee, your current supervisor will also weigh in with comments regarding work performance. Then you wait. Be prepared to wait a very long time unless the need is immensely important. Be aware that many companies ebb in and out of hiring freezes based on their quarterly performances. This was the case with my interview process which caused a three week "dead air" span in communications between myself and the HR manager. More on that later...

    Negotiation

    The best advice I can give to people is to get your requirements figured out beforehand. Depending on the financial climate of the interviewing department, you may not be able to get a "killer offer". As a rule, Kodak tends to pay less than other companies in the Dayton area - but the perks are nice and the environment is less stressful than ends-against-the-middle tactics that many employers like to use. However, perks don't pay the bills. Depending on your personal financial situation, you may decide that you just need more money. You must take into account the calculated trickery of the HR department. I lobbied for a raise for the promotion I was to receive but was turned down. Although I accepted the offer, one of my stipulations was based on a mutual agreement to have the promotion take place at the end of Q1 in 2009 with a customary salary increase. However, Kodak announced that there would be no raises for 2009, with only special exceptions made in "very unique" circumstances. I have been advised, however, that my circumstance is not "very unique" and I will not be receiving compensation but I will receive a promotion. The trickery is maddening. Get your offer in writing. Be firm. Seriously.
