    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Guardian Industries in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview then they bring you in for a face to face interview with all the senior level employees. I was there for about 8 hours with a lunch provided by the company interviewing with different people and touring the plant. Every interviewer didn't have many questions they were more interested in what questions I had.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult part of the interview was trying to find different questions to ask each of the interviewers during the long interviews that centered on the questions I had for the interviewer.   Answer Question

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn Hills, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn Hills, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Guardian Industries in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    My interview process was very good, but very long. This couldn't be helped because of the travel schedules of some of the people I met with. I had an initial call with the recruiter and then a face-to-face off-site with the manager for the position. I had two subsequent office interview schedules with several people each time. The process took about 3 months before I was extended the offer. The offer letter process, drug testing and background/reference check process went off without a hitch. Pretty streamlined, although the hard-copy, paper application was a surprise.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any extremely difficult or unexpected questions. There were some very good behavioral interview questions so that I could provide good examples of my past work history.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Pretty straight-forward! They made their best offer and when I countered they told me as much and asked me to make a decision!

    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Floreffe, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Guardian Industries in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of an initial screening on the University Campus and a final interview in the actual manufacturing plant. The initial interview was with the manager and was more of a casual conversation to see if the person was a fit for the culture. The on site interview consisted of 4 interviews (Plant Manager, HR manager, Hot End Manager and Upper Line Manager). It was a day long process and they paid for all accommodations. Once I got the job offer, it was a complete hassle from there on. Little to no help was provided when transferring to the new city for the job and HR clearly showed its lack of experience and professionalism. Overall, I do not recommend this company to anyone.

    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate a $1,500 raise from the original offer. My advice is to really get what you want going in because bonuses and raises are not good.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Corsicana, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Corsicana, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Guardian Industries in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with a total of 7 people, each one of the interviews lasted about 20 to 30 minutes. First interview was with the person from HR. He asked the basic HR type questions ( What are you strengths/weakness? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Whats the idea job for you? Tell me about yourself? What are hobbies? etc...). The rest of the interviews were with the technical people. The facility there in Corsicana was a typical manufacturing environment; loud, dirty, and hot. I started to have second thoughts about wanting to work there, but then again this is a very difficult job market. As far as I know the interview went well. I just had one complaint. I was told by the last interviewer that they would be in contact the next week. After two weeks and several emails they sent me an email saying they would not be making me an offer. I guess everybody thought someone else was going to send the email. I thought that showed a lack of class. Overall the experience was positive because I got to go on a trip for two days, and I got a little more interview experience.

    Plant Superintendent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Corsicana, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Corsicana, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Guardian Industries in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process could be a lot better. When a schedule is made for the interview process, the interviewee has to wait several minutes in order to see the next person on the list, and a lot of times you don't get to meet everyone on the schedule, for one reason or another. This has the interviewee having to come back several times.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't really any difficult questions. Guardian doesn't really follow a structured interview process. One thing I can honestly say about Guardian is when they find that right canidate they will make an offer quickly.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I actually went through a Recuriter. I asked for 3 weeks vacation and got it. The negotiation phase with Guardian was fairly easy. I received everything I had asked for.
