    Marketing Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Goodyear (Akron, OH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The process consisted of a phone interview, a personality test and a long in-person interview in Akron. The people doing the interviews seemed distracted and acted like they did not want to be there. They did not have good things to say about the direction of the company or the people. All of the people gave me great feedback and said I would get the job yet they did not even take me to the next step. They also ask you to do a case study which is childish and not needed at this level.

    Interview

    The hiring process is easy. It's pretty much straight forward if you know how to work on a car or if you don't. Really flexible hours. Because a lot of people don't like to work on cars.

    It was really an easy interwiew. I mean it was like a nice talk on professional issues. No tricks to check your stress resistance or somthing like that. The interview was conducted in 3 languages. It was split in 2 parts (in different days). The atmosphere was rather business-friendly.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne (Australia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Goodyear (Melbourne (Australia)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed in Melbourne Australia for a contract Project Manager position. The head digital when came in to interview was spaced out the whole 45 minutes. She was not listening and when I finished talking about my latest experience she asked me 'so tell me about your latest job experience'. Her counterpart was sharp and politely told her that, that is what I just finished talking about.

     Later on I found out that they had already decided on a candidate the day before and were interviewing me just for the heck of it as its company policy and probably too late to back out.

    Totally un-professional and waste of time.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Goodyear (North Topeka, KS) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer was a woman forgot her name, it was at the Topeka warehouse plant on 24 hi way. You apply online, it took me 2 months for them to finally call me. Once they did it was by email, they give you a certain time to respond to that email, to call and set the time for your interview. If you are one second late for your interview you will not be considered. The job started off at 16.25 an hour, they have you dress casual, they were impressed that I wore dress shirt, slacks, and polished dress shoes. They say the interview will last an 11/2 hour, but it only lasted 20 min.

    Interview Questions

    • You are asked what is your strength and weakness, what did you like or dislike about your previous jobs, you are asked at your last job name a time you suggested something to your employer and they used your idea, they ask you name a time when you have acted in a way that is not becoming, If hired what will you bring. etc. They ask about twenty questions. My interview was on April 12, 2015 and I have never heard from them again. I asked them what they are looking in an employee, I was told dependable, and self motivated. They were looking to hire 50 people, and I was told they were already over their max, we were being interviewed just in case someone didn't pass background or their UA test. I was also told, they didn't no when I would possibly be called: they said it could be two weeks, a month, or six months. In other words they were saying you didn't get the job. Very discouraging. and I have a Bachelors Degree.   Answer Question
