    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Akron, OH

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Goodyear (Akron, OH) in July 2011.

    Interview

    took too long. resume review to phone screen was over 2 weeks, phone to in-person was another 2 weeks, decision to make offer another 2 weeks. good thing I didnt have another offer come in during this process or I would have gone with it instead of Goodyear. Once there, I realized they lose a lot of good candidates because of how long it takes to interview and decide.

    Marketing Manager/North America Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Goodyear (Akron, OH).

    Interview

    Contacted by an outside recruiting firm followed by a phone interview. A month later I was contacted by Goodyear HR for a video interview based on behavioral and culture fit questions. Another month later I was contacted by HR again to ask if I was still interested but in the course of our conversation I learned that the scope and responsibilities of the original position changed. I was concerned but still continued with the interview process. 2-3 weeks later I was brought in for a half day interview with multiple team members. Standard interview questions but focused heavily on culture and team fit. Based on past conversations I believe the department experienced some significant turn over and a very specific "fit" was needed. Great conversations with HR and hiring manager but other team members made no effort to hide the fact that they were missable and disgruntled. They were clear that only a specific person fits with the Goodyear culture but they couldn't provide examples or characteristics. After my interview i leveraged my network for advice and past employees spoke of morale issues and others had similar interview experiences. Received an email 2 weeks later stating that I was being turned down for the role.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was extensive. I started with a phone screen followed by a personality assessment and then two rounds of in person interviews with multiple people. However, the questions were standard and, even though the process was long, I didn't think it was excessive.

    Reasons for Declining

    I think they've really improved their overall culture but I didn't want to make the commute to Akron. I was also worried about work life balance.
