There are 2-3 rounds of interview. In the in-person round, there will be almost all the people from the senior management attending the interview. This might sound to be baffling. But do not get perplexed here. This is just the way they do the interview.

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at GAF in September 2014.
I talked with 5 pairs. Some engineers, managers, co-ops. It took about 3 hours because we had lunch with them, then, did a tour of the factory for an hour. They just ask you basic behavior questions and about your projects. It would be nice to bring lots of questions so that you can show them how much you are interested in the position and working for the company.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at GAF (Wayne, NJ).
Soon after applying (possibly because of my employee referral,) I was contacted by an admin assistant in HR to schedule a screening call with a human resources rep. The phone screening was short and sweet, and I enjoyed our conversation over the phone. They scheduled me for an interview a few days later. The "interview" consisted of a skills test- verbal, math, and applied math. Pretty easy. I then met with the HR rep for a few minutes, and interviewed with three managers in the department.

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at GAF.
There were three different interviewers. A tour of the plant was giving before the interview. Each interviewer asked one to three basic behavioral questions, for example: Can you remember a time when a team member had a conflicting issue and how did you resolve it? What are some of your goals you wish to achieve in your field of study?
