Engineer Interview

Declined Offer
Declined Offer

Application

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Goodyear.

Interview

Talked to recruiters at a campus career fair, got an interview the next day. Interviewed with a process engineer and another long-time engineer. Both were very nice and personable, the interview didn't feel intimidating. They started by asking about my resume and experience and then moved to a more behavioral interview.

Interview Questions

  • Pretty standard behavioral questions: Tell us about a time when you solved a problem in a unique way, etc.   Answer Question

Reasons for Declining

Had another offer, wasn't very attracted to Akron

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Goodyear (Akron, OH) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a talent recruiter to fill out a candidate profile. Then was subject to GPA verification followed by a personality test. After the personality test an application was filled out followed by a phone interview. After the initial phone interview(could be skype interview) I was asked to attend an onsite interview. If you can get to this point you're a strong candidate. You have to shine here. The day started with a presentation from various chief engineers, followed by a plant tour, followed by lunch. Be as personable as possible. After lunch 2, hour long interviews will take place after which a group building exercise will take place. The interview questions can be quite difficult it would be beneficial to practice before hand. Good Luck

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goodyear (Akron, OH) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Overall a very basic interview. There were a few "star" type interview questions. The interviewer asked one question and told me to take "10 minutes to think about the answer" and we proceeded to sit in silence until he allowed me to answer - I was cut off when i tried to start early. The interviewer seemed very nervous and did not speak english well. Overall it gave me a poor impression of the company and I left the interview knowing I did not want to work for them.
