    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Goodyear in September 2014.

    Interview

    I got an interview from a career fair even held at my current university. I came in the next day for my scheduled interveiw and sat down at a table across from two Goodyear employees. They went on to ask me about 5 behavioral questions throughout the interveiw, and between questions they would make comments and we would just have a conversation. The interveiw was very relaxed and the emplyees were easy to talk to to. They understand that you may need a second to gather your thoughts and they are willing to give you that time to formulate a well rounded response.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Goodyear.

    Interview

    Interview was 45 minutes long. Basic Behavioral Questions. Had an online webcam interview with 3 people. The interview was very mundane, nothing too exciting. I wish they didn't have a webcam interview as it is very awkward and uncomfortable, especially since you can always see yourself during the interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goodyear (Akron, OH) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me early in the year and asked me to apply online. Did so and received a rejection email a week later.

    Recruiter contacted me again a month ago, asked me to apply online, again, for the same position. Did so and was called for a phone interview. Apparently did well enough on the phone interview to warrant an in-person interview. Interviewed with 4 different people, one from HR, three from the department. Received rejection email on the Saturday after the interview (work-life balance, anyone?).

    Interview Questions
