    Very comfortable interview process. Recruited at local university where initial interviews were held, then attended HQ for second-rounds. HR services could use a slight upgrade, however management makes you feel very comfortable and don't try to stump you throughout the process.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Akron, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Akron, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Goodyear in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Goodyear in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to apply the position (in 12/11), soon after I was asked to take an online tests, which evaluated my ability to perform under situations of conflict. After a two month wait I got a call for a phone interview, in which they asked questions like what is innovation, do you have reengineering experience, do you have cross cultural experience, how do you manage a situation when you have give priority one project over another? I think thhis phase of the selection was done by Rightthing inc based in Findlay, OH, who must be contractors to Goodyear. After the interview I was told I will get a result within a week, but within few seconds I was asked to fill the corporate recruitment form. After filling the form and waiting for another couple of months, I get an email message saying my background doesn't fit their business needs. Good, they invite a person to apply and take four months doesn't meet theit requirements. I don't what kinfd of people work there
